Pacino’s ‘Ross’ boss of Broadway

Play's average ticket price is among the top

Al Pacino cemented his status as one of Broadway’s top box office draws in week 21 (Oct. 15-21), with the Pacino-toplined revival of “Glengarry Glen Ross” logging stellar sales in a frame that launched similarly strong B.O. at Frankie Valli’s concert engagement.

“Glengarry” posted a boffo $703,775 from just a quartet of previews. Average ticket price, a good measure of demand since it reps the amount theatergoers are willing to shell out for an attraction, hit $164.47, putting the show almost in the same orbit as “The Book of Mormon” ($1,655,294), which averaged $189.13 paid per ducat.

“Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons on Broadway” posted receipts of $633,900 from only three perfs, with an average price paid coming in at $125.
