Broadway held as steady as a rock in this post-Tony week with ticket sales nearly matching the previous reporting period: $21,957,194 compared to $21,958,009 for the week ending June 13. The same week last year posted $20,838,040.

This season is well on its way to outstripping the last season, $86,976.957 compared to $82,348,409, representing a 5.6 percent improvement. Seven productions made the million-dollar lineup this week: Wicked at the Gershwin, The Lion King at the Minskoff, The Addams Family at the Lunt-Fontanne, Promises, Promises at the Broadway, Fences at the Cort, Billy Elliot at the Imperial and Jersey Boys at the August Wilson.

Once again, the only play in the lineup, “Fences,” proved formidable, achieving 127.66 percent of its Gross Gross Potential exceeding “Wicked” at 103.46 percent, “A Little Night Music” at 103 percent and “The Lion King” at 101 percent. Overall attendance was just over 80 percent, a slight drop from last week at almost 83 percent.

“A Little Night Music” and “Jersey Boys” continue to vie for the Top Ticket at $350 while another musical, “Everyday Rapture” at the Helen Hayes, offers the Best Buy as judged by the Average Paid Admission ranking.

Posting the largest dollar increase of one week over the next was the musical Memphis at the Shubert, which increased by $138,089. The largest decrease was seen by the musical Come Fly Away at the Marquis, down $139,771. Comparing change in percentage of audience share, “Come Fly Away” also saw a precipitous drop of 13.2 percent. “Promises, Promises” posted the greatest increase at nine percent.

A Little Night Music at the Walter Kerr is taking a break but will reopen July 13 and the play Red at the Golden will end its limited run on June 27.
