This story was corrected on March 11, 2001.

NEW YORK — Broadway got a winter lift during Week 39 (Feb. 19-25), bringing the total net up to $12,204,960, a percentage gain of 2.9%. Attendance was up a stronger 9.4%, from 204,450 in the previous week to 223,736 last week.

Three new shows continued previewing last week: “Judgment at Nuremberg,” “A Class Act,” and “Design for Living.” All notched gains over the prior frame.

Shows that slipped last week included “The Lion King,” which declined by $2,025 to close at $1,003,669 — still the biggest take on Broadway by some measure — followed by “Jane Eyre,” down $31,092 to net a worrisome $291,104 of a potential $595,549.

Nineteen musicals were on the boards last week, taking in $10,395,807 for 85.2% of the Broadway returns, with paid attendance of 184,115 at 92.1% of musical capacity.

The seven plays totaled $1,809,153 for 14.8% of the Broadway total, with paid attendance of 39,621 at 86.7% of play capacity.
