Biz up; ‘Wonderful’ 502g

Broadway grosses

NEW YORK — Broadway recovered from the previous week’s snowstorm during Week 35 (Jan. 24-30), but receipts failed to skyrocket after so low a blow to the box office. Twenty-five shows brought in $12,325,216, up only $402,309 or 3.37%.

The first storm of 2005 caused record lows at many shows during the Jan. 10-16 frame. In comparison, last week’s rebound looked decent but not great.

“Good Vibrations” ($269,040) took the week’s biggest hit, down $47,692. Its slip could be blamed on a few factors: Thursday’s preem party, crix tix and a reduced seven-perf sked.

In their final weeks, “Wonderful Town” ($502,476) rose the most, up $128,519; but the Roundabout’s “Pacific Overtures” ($325,514) barely budged, gaining only $22,380.

“Avenue Q” ($484,446) put in one of its few non-sold-out weeks. Off $2,121, the tuner played to 95.9% cap.

“Dame Edna: Back With a Vengeance” ($260,752) made no recovery from the storm, its receipts increasing a mere $9,907. Capacity stood at an ominous 57.2%.

Up $110,373, “Little Women” ($453,011) recuperated nicely after its heavily comped preem week. Playing to 74.9% capacity last week, the girl-power tuner can look forward someday to meeting its $843,952 gross potential at the Virginia Theater.

The 18 musicals grossed $9,996,314 for 81.1% of the Broadway total, with attendance of 152,646 at 77.6% of capacity.

The seven plays grossed $2,328,902 for 18.9% of the Broadway total, with attendance of 36,416 at 74.6% of capacity.

Average ticket prices were $65.49 for musicals, $63.95 for plays and $65.19 for all shows.
