Broadway grosses reached $30.5 million in the week ended Dec. 12, as the industry holds on to seasonal highs.
Last week’s total marks the second highest gross recorded on Broadway this season, after the $32.5 million grossed in the Thanksgiving week ended Nov. 28. The 32 shows running last week played at a capacity of 85%.
The productions commanded an average ticket price of $126.91, the second highest ticket price recorded this season. The Broadway League began reporting grosses, which are released as a collective total, rather than segmented by show, starting with the week ended Oct. 24.
Productions played 235 performances last week, as “Freestyle Love Supreme” and “Mrs. Doubtfire” both canceled shows due to the discovery of COVID-19 breakthrough cases.
Two more shows were added to the industry roster, as “MJ” began previews Dec. 6 and “Dear Evan Hansen” resumed performances Dec. 11. “Dear Evan Hansen” is the last show to reopen this year.
