B’way B.O. bounces back with breezes

'Voices,' 'Kat' boost tally

Box offices perked up as refreshing late-summer breezes blew down Broadway last week. Overall grosses were $10,410,887 — a 6% gain over the previous week’s $9,969,695. Musicals enjoyed most of the lift, with only three shows out of 18 seeing dips.

The boards’ tally was boosted by two new shows — thriller “Voices in the Dark” and musical “Kat and the Kings.”

“Voices” got off to a slow start its first full week, earning $127,067 out of a potential $369,446 (or 34%).

Plays steady

Play averaged $18,152 for each of seven perfs, virtually matching the amount earned by previous week’s single preview. The South African-set tuner “Kat” opened at the Cort to earn $58,647 out of a potential $258,796.

“Art” shuttered after a 600-perf run, gaining $31,347 for a total of $299,051 for its final week, an upswing of 11%. Proving its durability again last week, “Death of a Salesman” played at 97% of potential, with a $8,587 gain pushing grosses up to $414,620.

‘Side Man’ sidles sideways

“Side Man” continued to have its ups and downs, as last week’s $5,282 loss left it with a gross of $151,382 (or 49% of potential). Although it posted only a minuscule loss, “Closer” didn’t gain either as it enters its final weeks at 30% of potential.

Gaining tuners shared the wealth, as “Chicago” increased $56,992 to reach $601,281 (80% of potential); “Peter Pan” rose by $39,278 to notch $536,870 (60%); and “Phantom of the Opera” bounced back from previous week’s loss, gaining $35,457 to hit $729,192 (93% of potential).

“Annie Get Your Gun” and “Cabaret” also remained strong at 92% and 93% of respective potentials. “Fosse” and “The Lion King” each cleared 100% of their gross potential.
