Broadway enjoyed another strong week, with attendance coming in at just below 90%. This has been the trend rather than the exception for the Main Stem all summer, with the season to date having played to 85.7% capacity cumulatively. Average ticket price stayed steady at $129.26, with the cumulative gross coming in at $27.6 million.
Two productions closed August 14, POTUS: Or, Behind Every Great Dumbass Are Seven Women Trying to Keep Him Alive and Tina - The Tina Turner Musical. The former said goodbye to Broadway with the strongest week of its entire run, bringing in $750k and filling 77% of seats at the Shubert Theatre-the next-highest grossing week for the comedy was the week ending August 7, with receipts coming in at $579k.
The Music Man, Hamilton, and The Lion King continued their dominance at the box office, bringing in $2.8 million, $2.2 million, and $2 million respectively. The Into the Woods revival is also proving a top-of-the-list mainstay, coming close to The Lion King's total this week and filling 100.18% of seats at the St. James.
