B.O. grosses up 4.8%; shows see 5-figure hike

Attendance numbers down by more than 20,000

Broadway grosses recovered a bit from the summer slide last week, with total B.O. rising to $12,584,341, an uptick of 4.8% over the prior frame. Attendance was also up, to 206,281, an upswing of 1.8%.

Still, the good news is tempered by perspective: While the B.O. figure is just a little off the numbers for the same frame during the past two seasons, the attendance numbers are down by more than 20,000.

The majority of shows saw increases in five figures. “42nd Street,” “Fortune’s Fool” and “Noises Off” all saw upticks of more than $65,000. A new cast led by Jane Curtin takes over at the latter this week.

“I’m Not Rappaport” began previews at the Booth, taking $35,660 for its first four perfs.

Among the few shows seeing five-figure drops for the week were high-grossing family tuners “Aida” (off $25,927 to $628,139) and “Beauty and the Beast” (off $13,087 to $597,581) as well as “Les Miserables” (down $37,143 to $360,539) and “Into the Woods” (down $36,908 to $404,128).

Beginning previews Thursday at the Neil Simon is the new tuner “Hairspray.”
