B.O. Keeps Climbing

Broadway receipts and attendance were up during Week 28 (Dec. 4-10), with shows making gains nearly across the board. Receipts rose 4.3% to $9,836,106, and paid attendance jumped 4.7% to 205,143.

“Show Boat” was up $67,379 to $75,810, the biggest take of the week. The show consistently trades places with “Victor/Victoria” as the highest grosser on Broadway.

Five shows saw slight losses: “Having Our Say” dipped $2,837, “Master Class” was down a slight $1,825, “The Phantom of the Opera” slipped a minuscule $112 and “The Tempest” fell off $1,652.

“Sunset Boulevard” was down $29,844, having lost a performance due to flooding at the Minskoff, but still virtually netted its potential for seven performances.
