B.O. up; ‘Fiddler’ 604g

Broadway grosses

NEW YORK — Grosses climbed during the penultimate week of the Broadway season, Week 52 (May 12-23). This is one of Broadway’s unusual “leap” years, with 53 official weeks.

B.O. was up by 5.75% to $16,533,775. Attendance of 258,169 was up by a similar 6.5%.

All but a few shows saw increases as the pre-Tony buzz and warmer weather helped lift grosses. Only shows to buck the upward trend were “Sight Unseen,” which took a small dip as it continued in previews, and “Fiddler on the Roof,” which was down by a negligible $9,304 to $604,576.

Frank Langella starrer “Match” played its last perf, moving up by $52,787 to $273,303 for its final week.

The 22 musicals grossed $13,968,844 for 84.5% of the Broadway total, with attendance of 212,348 representing 83.6% of capacity.

The 10 plays grossed $2,564,931 for 15.5% of the Broadway total, with attendance of 45,821 representing 75% of capacity.

Average ticket prices were $65.78 for musicals, $55.98 for plays and $64.04 for all shows.
