B.O. bottoms out

Legit receipts topple amidst Gotham recovery effort

NEW YORK — Broadway was hobbled in the days following the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, with B.O. for the week plunging to a mere $3,647,734, a colossal 63.9% slide from the previous frame.

Perfs on the day of the attack and the Wednesday following were canceled, with the result that grosses rep five performances for most shows. Exceptions are noted. Potential gross and potential capacity numbers have been adjusted accordingly.

As usual, the top earners were “The Producers” and “The Lion King,” but even those shows were hit hard, with “Lion” taking $379,885 of a potential $750,456 and “The Producers” — with Nathan Lane giving just one performance due to illness — taking $546,858 of a potential $657,183. Its 82.7% capacity was the highest of all shows, not surprisingly.

The 17 musicals did $3,067,157, for 88.5% of the Broadway total. Musical attendance was 56,722, representing TK% of capacity.

The six plays grossed $398,877, for 11.5% of the total, with attendance of 9,910 repping 34.9% of capacity.

Average ticket prices were $40.25 for plays, $54.07 for musicals and $51.48 for all shows.
