Biz up; ‘Ave Q’ 388g

Broadway grosses

NEW YORK — Broadway grosses saw a modest rise during Week 51 (May 10-16), creeping up 3.2% to $15,634,148, with attendance up 3.3% to 242,351 in the wake of the Tony nominations announcement on Monday.

But Tony noms did not necessarily beget box office rewards for individual shows, especially for two best musical revival contenders. Despite six noms, “Fiddler on the Roof” dipped by $36,394 to $613,880. “Assassins” (seven noms) dropped $16,371 to $336,121.

But “Avenue Q” (six noms) rose $56,473 to $388,281, “The Boy From Oz” (five noms) climbed $52,487 to $864,487 and “A Raisin in the Sun” (four noms) ascended $43,795 to $570,019. “Caroline, or Change” (six noms) dropped only $368, to $408,591, despite Friday’s perf getting cancelled because of a sprinkler system malfunction.

“Gypsy” was the biggest gainer, jumping $100,179 to $444,462 in its third-to-last week.

The 22 musicals grossed $13,239,712 for 84.7% of the Broadway total, with attendance of 200,452 at 79.3% of capacity.

The nine plays grossed $2,394,436 for 15.3% of the Broadway total, with attendance of 41,899 at 69.4% of capacity.
