Broadway Tops Its Biggest Week Ever

The New York Times
Broadway Tops Its Biggest Week Ever
By ANDREW R. CHOWJAN. 2, 2018

The week between Christmas and New Year’s is typically Broadway’s biggest of the year, with tourists in town and students off for the holidays. The total box-office gross reached $50.3 million, edging out the record set at the end of last year. But attendance was higher the same week last year, with 359,495 theatergoers.

‘Freak Show’: Berlin Review

Screen Daily
Freak Show‘: Berlin Review
