L.A. legit box office takes a slide

L.A. legit tallies fell last week, with four shows reporting $ 1,053,345, down from previous sesh’s $ 1,153,593.

The Mark Taper Forum had the only blockbuster session, as the final round of “Angels in America” broke the theater’s all-time one-week record.

The show brought in $ 180,884, in part due to a last-minute increase in ticket prices — from $ 64 to $ 75 — for the final two days of marathon shows. The new weekly potential was $ 199,117. “Angels,” which is now Broadway-bound, reaped $ 736,506 for a five-week run.

“Six Degrees of Separation” fell in its eighth week at the Doolittle, from $ 204,315 to $ 186,049.

“Forever Plaid” also slipped in its 38th week at the Canon, down to $ 64,950 from prior week’s $ 68,249.

“The Phantom of the Opera” tumbled from its Thanksgiving week comeback of $ 729,489 down to $ 623,462.
