Street B.O. on upswing

Broadway rebounded during Week 16 (Sept. 11-17), with receipts jumping 9.9% to $6,983,938, and paid attendance leaping 13.1% to 154,238.

Only three shows saw falling receipts at the B.O.: “Beauty and the Beast,” down $11,797 from the previous week’s total, “Grease,” dropping $10,404, and “Company,” slipping $3,098 in previews.

“Moon Over Buffalo” brought in a sluggish $203,836 for its first week of previews at the Martin Beck, but will probably pick up speed for next week’s chart.

“Love! Valour! Compassion!” ended its run at the Walter Kerr on an upswing, playing to packed houses and bringing in $237,478, a increase of $72,391 over the previous week.

“Smokey Joe’s Cafe” was one of the top gainers, up $54,801. Receipts for the musicals totaled $5,933,916, 85% of the Broadway total, with paid attendance of 120,305 at 87.2% of musical capacity.

Plays did $1,050,022,15% of the Broadway total, with attendance of 33,933 at 73.6% of play capacity. Average ticket prices were $45.28 for all shows, $49.32 for musicals and $30.94 for plays.
