Biz holds steady

Receipts and attendance held even during Week 43 (March 20-26) with an overall take of $8,390,947, reflecting a tiny .2% hike. Attendance was up 1.4% for a total paid audience of 201,094.

Incorrect figures for “Sunset Boulevard” were reported to Variety for the two weeks star Glenn Close was on vacation. The take for Week 41 (March 6-12) was $569,720, not the reported $724,780, and Variety estimates that during Week 42 (March 13 -19) the gross was $575,000, not $752,400. With Close back on stage last week, the show upped its take by well over $200,000.

“Kiss of the Spider Woman” took the biggest hit, dropping $182,704 from its previous week. “Beauty and the Beast” and “Tommy” took sizable slides as well.

“Damn Yankees” jumped $49,402; “Translations” was up by $46,654; and “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” jumped by just over $40,000 during its opening week.

“The Moliere Comedies” finished its run at the Roundabout Criterion on March 26 and “Rob Becker’s Defending the Caveman” opened at the Helen Hayes, settling into a six-performance weekly sked.
