Broadway box office rides Tony pony

'Venus' posts big bump before orbiting off stage

Broadway box office for Week 3 (June 11-17) was a mixed bag, but the productions fresh off Tony wins turned the heads of ticketbuyers.

Awards-magnet “Once” ($955,362) had its best week so far, as did “Newsies” ($1,049,581), the Disney Theatrical Prods. tuner that won a couple of awards and got a prominent showcase during the June 10 awards telecast. Play “One Man, Two Guvnors” ($648,505), which stars lead actor winner James Corden, also logged the best numbers of its run so far.

“Venus in Fur” ($635,622), hot on the heels of its win for lead actress Nina Arianda, posted the biggest proportional bump, rising 51%. It helped that “Venus,” which spent much of the spring logging middling numbers at best, closed June 17, and also got a boost from last-minute biz.

The 22 musicals grossed $19,579,092 for 76.7% of the Broadway total, with attendance of 195,223 and an average paid admission of $100.29.

The 13 plays grossed $5,956,889 for 23.3% of the Broadway total, with attendance of 73,946 and an average paid admission of $80.56.

Overall, Rialto sales rose by about $571,000 to $25.5 million for the 35 shows on the boards.
