Broadway offered something for everyone last week, as long as everyone was loaded with dough. Face-value ducats topped out at $1,150 for blockbuster Hamilton, but that was Monopoly money considering the going rate for fans of Bette Midler (nearing the spectacular end of her spectacular run in Hello, Dolly!) and Bruce Springsteen (whose work week is limited to five performances at the 948-seat Walter Kerr).

A steady mid-summer on Broadway overall reflects a decent, tourist-driven mean but not the roller-coaster ride some shows are on, especially those that are star-driven. Kinky Boots, in its fifth year at Jujamcyn Theatres’ Hirschfeld, has enjoyed a big shot in the arm from Brendon Urie on the marquee; the show was up $60K last week to $1.4 million thanks to the Panic! At The Disco frontman’s fan base. That was more than 15 per cent above the show’s gross potential, with an average ticket price of $126.49. Read More

DeBroadway went to the beach with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie over what for many was the Independence Day weekend, as patrons stayed away in droves following the previous week’s banner stand. Ticket sales fell 9 percent over the week before, with the most dramatic plunge hitting the Bette Midler-free Hello, Dolly! With the Tony-winning star on vacation, ticket sales plummeted $1.37 million to $936,603 for eight performances despite great word-of-mouth for replacement Dolly Levi, Donna Murphy. Attendance fell as well, to 76 percent of capacity, with patrons paying on average $106.31 per ticket. (Midler returns July 12.) Read More
