Don’t worry. It’s not “Hamilton” isn’t still the phenomenon of all time.
But this past week for the first time since June 12th, the Pulitzer and Tony winning musical fell below the $2 million mark. Also, the average ticket price dropped to $185.70, the lowest it’s been since June 5th.
The “Hamilton” gross was down by $170,000 from last week. Surprisingly, there have been weeks when that number was higher.
Should anyone be worried? Not a bit. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s masterwork still took in over $1.9 million, and finished second only to “The Lion King.” Is there any human left who hasn’t seen “The Lion King”? And in different languages?
Meanwhile, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons grossed $580,000 last week, selling 92% of the seats at the Lunt-Fontanne Theater. Not bad considering “Jersey Boys,” the fictionalized version of their story, made $830,560 around the corner at the August Wilson. That’s a lot of people in one week humming “Walk Like A Man.”
