Broadway persevered its winter freeze closing week, with box place of job shedding 11% to a slim $16,494,289 for its meager 21-indicate roster. Attendance for the week ending Jan. 23 was once 152,135, a lumber of 6% from the old week.
The lowered roster – the old week had 25 productions on the boards – did appear to serve on the least some per-indicate attendances: In all, total attendance was once at 75% of Broadway ability, a noticeable soar from the old week’s 66%.
The figures also replicate the lowered prices of the twice-annual Broadway Week promotion (of route, nearly a month this year, ending Feb. 13), with two-for-one tickets on hand at many presentations.
Despite a modest $108 moderate designate mark, many attainable theater-goers it appears to be like remained reluctant to endeavor out all over Fresh York’s level-headed-pertaining to – if a good deal receding – Omicron wave. No Broadway manufacturing closing week saw any canceled performances closing week because of the illness.
Composed, four productions had been gone from the roster, at the side of To Extinguish a Mockingbird (on hiatus till June 1) and the closed Flying Over Sunset, Ain’t Too Proud and Clyde’s. Next week’s roster will be thinner level-headed, with the departures of Lady From The North Country (eyeing a attainable spring return) and Slave Play.
Season to this point, Broadway has grossed $404,048,064, with total attendance of 3,227,888 at about 80% of ability.
The Broadway League is no longer any longer releasing box place of job numbers for particular person presentations this season, in a spoil with custom, so the right affect of target market declines on every particular manufacturing is unverifiable.
