Broadway continued its successful summer last week, with the 23 running shows bringing in $27.7 million cumulatively—a drop from last week's $29.5 million, but minus the Tony-winning revival of Company. Shows on the Main Stem also continue to have little trouble filling seats, with 88.61% of tickets sold.
Of particular note was Broadway's SIX, which said goodbye to original cast members Adrianna Hicks and Abby Mueller August 7. Fans bid them adieu in droves, filling 99.02% of seats at the Brooks Atkinson. Six was one of more than half of the currently running Broadway shows to fill its seats by 90% or more, with only Mr. Saturday Night and POTUS dipping below 70%.
The top earners continue to be the usual suspects, with The Music Man bringing in the most of the week at $2.8 million, despite only playing to 94.96% of its capacity at the Winter Garden Theatre—the average ticket price of $243.86 and top ticket price of $597 (and that's not counting third-party sales) help explain that particular piece of data. The next highest earners were The Lion King and Hamilton, both with roughly $2.22 million.
