Winter is cruel on Broadway. It’s cold out, and the shows suffer — even the big ones.
“Hello, Dolly!” was down over 6% in total capacity from last week, off by $160,000. WIth Bette Midler the average ticket price has sunk to $95.40. The heady days of $750 tickets is over.
“Hamilton” was off by almost $300,000– and their average ticket price is down. No show in invincible.
“The Book of Mormon” also took a hit– by just under $200,000. For the first time in two years that show finished the week below $1 million. Wow.
It’s a good time to see Broadway shows, that’s for sure. Go see “The Band’s Visit” now– before it wins a lot of Tony Awards!
