Broadway Grosses

Can you believe we are in the last week of February? Yet here we are with Spring around the corner and people are still coming to New York City to see a Broadway show. Now since the week before was a holiday week I expected that a lot of shows would see a drop in business. Well believe it or not it was the exact opposite. Wicked which has fallen to between 93%-94% the last few weeks went back up to 100% last week. To be honest they could fall to 90% and they would still do over a million dollars in sales. Of course having the biggest theatre on Broadway helps too.

Now besides Wicked four other shows hit the one million mark last week. They were Billy Elliot,Jersey Boys,The Lion King,and West Side Story. Not only that but there were five more shows that grossed $700,000 or more. Pretty impressive don't you think? By the way between now and the end of April fifteen more shows are set to open. Looks like Broadway is coming back. Not like it went away but you know what I mean. Don't forget to support the theatre next time you are in town. There is noting else like it in the world.
