After Broadway’s all-time highest-grossing frame New Year’s week, the tourists went home and five shows closed, causing grosses to plunge 35.5% to $14,224,482 during Week 32 (Jan. 3-9). Attendance dropped 25.5% to 215,003.

But the gross is not far off from past post-New Year’s frames: $14.1 million in 2004 and $14.8 million in 2003.

The only show to increase its gross was “700 Sundays,” which inched up $3,216 to $819,002.

Seventeen shows saw six-figure declines. “Fiddler on the Roof” took a 47.5% hit, dropping $543,965 to $601,947 in its first week with Harvey Fierstein and Andrea Martin in the lead roles. Others taking bit hits: “Movin’ Out” (down $403,033 to $600,063), “Beauty and the Beast” (down $392,465 to $651,563) and “The Producers” (down $367,181 to $850,764).
