Broadway B.O. Leaps Even As ‘Lion King’ & ‘Wicked’ Feel Winter Chill

Broadway B.O. Leaps Even As ‘Lion King’ & ‘Wicked’ Feel Winter Chill

With the three-day Martin Luther King holiday weekend as a spur, the Broadway box office defied the January trend, pole-vaulting 27% over the same week in 2017 and even surpassing the previous week by 2%. All that despite some staggering nose-dives among the family-friendly crowd.

That includes Disney’s two shows: The Lion King was off $681K from the previous week at the Nederlander Organization’s Minskoff Theatre, while Aladdin, installed at the Mouse’s New Amsterdam flagship, skidded nearly a quarter-million dollars. It wasn’t a great week for Andrew Lloyd Webber, either: The Phantom of the Opera, tagging the 30-year mark at the Shubert Organization’s Majestic Theatre, fell a chandelier-swinging $371K, while School of Rock, at the Shuberts’ Winter Garden, was off $193K. Wicked, at the Nederlanders’ Gershwin, was off $280K from the week before. Read More

Sellers’ Market Boosts Broadway B.O. To $50M All-Time Peak Week High

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).

Thanksgiving is traditionally a smorgasbord on Broadway: an orgiastic feast for fans, from star-studded parades to extra performances, stuffing seats with tourists and locals alike.

This year’s festivities were no exception, with sky-high grosses across the board yielding the industry’s best turkey week ever. 31 shows on the docket collected a whopping $39.07 million. That’s 10% higher than last year’s record, and points to a truly bodacious December frame. Read More
