Broadway rebounded last week following the post-Thanksgiving dip. For the week ending Dec. 11, the 35 productions running on Broadway grossed $37,217,001, up 10% from last week, and propelling the box office to its second-best week of the 2022-2023 season. Capacity was at 87%, up 5%.

The top-three highest-grossing shows were “The Music Man,” “The Lion King” and “Wicked.” “Hamilton” and “The Phantom of the Opera” round out the top-five productions, all of which grossed at least $2 million.

Fifteen productions played to 95% capacity or greater, while only five played to less than 70%.

In its final week on Broadway, “KPOP” grossed $281,757, up 123% from the prior week. The new musical, which closed on Dec. 11, played to over 100% capacity, an increase of 40%.

“Ain’t No Mo’,” which on Friday scheduled a closing date of Dec. 18, grossed $164,592, an increase of 36%. However, attendance plummeted 32%, with the show playing to just 47% capacity. 

“Topdog/Underdog” struggled last week, earning $264,965, down 12%, and playing to 52% capacity, down 8%. The revival was one of just four productions to experience a decrease in both gross and attendance.

Meanwhile, “Leopoldstadt” — which last week announced it would extend its limited run through July — grossed $1,078,215, down 0.82%, and played to 81% capacity, down 0.19%. This marked the ninth consecutive week when the new play grossed more than $1 million.

“A Beautiful Noise, The Neil Diamond Musical” saw a 43% increase in grosses during its first full week of performances following its Dec. 4 opening night. The new musical earned $1,447,503 and played to 95% capacity, up 4%.

“A Christmas Carol” also saw significant increases last week. The production grossed $742,010, up 34%, and played to 83% capacity, up 22%.

Other recently opened productions saw double-digit monetary growth, including “1776” (up 15%) and “& Juliet” (up 12%). Longer-running productions experienced similar increases, including “Beetlejuice” (up 16%), “Chicago” (up 14%), “Hadestown” (up 10%), “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” (up 12%), “The Music Man” (up 12%) and “Wicked” (up 14%).

“Ohio State Murders” and “Some Like It Hot” had their official opening nights last week. “Between Riverside and Crazy” and “The Collaboration” remained in previews.
