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.
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.
