B.O. slips; ‘Aida’ 333g

Broadway Grosses

NEW YORK — Broadway grosses continued to tumble during Week 36 (Jan. 26-Feb. 1), as cold weather still plagued the city. B.O. was down by 6.4% overall to $11,691,284. Attendance fell by 4.1% to 177,064.

Five-figure drops were the norm. “Aida” took the biggest hit: The Disney tuner dove by $103,799 to $333,191. But grosses in the $300,000 to $400,000 range were the norm for most of the big tuners. “The Phantom of the Opera” earned just $373,861, less than half of potential.

Three shows announced closing dates: “Never Gonna Dance,” “Gypsy” and “The Retreat From Moscow.” “Drowning Crow” joined the roster at the Biltmore, taking $110,854 for its first five previews.

The 21 musicals grossed $10,702,940 for 91.5% of the Broadway total, with attendance of 157,158 at 65.4% of capacity.

The six plays grossed $988,344 for 8.5% of the Broadway total, with attendance of 19,906 at 54.3% of capacity.

Average ticket prices were $68.10 for musicals, $49.65 for plays and $66.03 for all shows.
