Strike taking its toll

Broadway Grosses

NEW YORK Unlike the slow-burn aftereffects of a Hollywood strike, a Broadway work stoppage has instant box office repercussions.

The stagehands’ walkout wiped out weekend perfs for most shows on the boards, knocking the performance tally for most of those productions down to four or five for Week 24 (Nov. 5-11).

Taking into account estimated grosses for “Young Frankenstein,” the total Rialto cume went down about one-third from the prior frame to $12.5 million.

Powered by strong reviews, “Cyrano de Bergerac” ($518,554) proved the healthiest holdout among affected shows, managing to hold onto 78% of the prior week’s biz in a five-perf frame.

The 24 musicals grossed $8,651,113 ($10,091,113 estimated) for 78.1% of the Broadway total, with an attendance of 114,713 at 77.4% capacity and average paid admission of $75.41.

The 11 plays grossed $2,419,553 for 21.9% of the Broadway total, with an attendance of 43,475 at 79.9% capacity and an average paid admission of $55.65.

Average paid admission was $69.98 for all shows.
