With solid sales week after week, it was just about inevitable that the Radio City Christmas Spectacular would eventually claim the No. 1 spot in TicketNews’ exclusive events rankings. And it finally did so for the week ending Sunday, November 27.

The holiday favorite boasts new production numbers for its famous Rockettes, new scenes and costumes and improvements to its digital projection technology. The production reached No. 1 in this week’s Broadway rankings, and it topped the week’s theater rankings, too.

When all the ticket sales from the Broadway show and the traveling company are added together — the road show is playing in Boston, MA; Durham, NC; and Nashville, TN — the franchise bested all rivals this week in the overall rankings .

Also showing seasonal prowess, the holiday-themed concerts offered by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra are proving to be a hit with audiences once again. The two-group nationwide tour finishing at No. 3 in ticket sales for the week.

Hugh Jackman once again added his star power to the events top ten as his Hugh Jackman Back on Broadway at New York’s Broadhurst Theatre took No. 9 for the second week running. This makes the popular and well-reviewed show a top ten finisher once again. The one man show will run through the holiday season, with Jackman’s last performance scheduled for New Year’s Day.

While not cracking the Top 20 combined events rankings, another holiday-themed show, New York City Ballet: Nutcracker, finished at No. 9 in the theater rankings after finishing at No. 10 last week. The show, which takes place at David H. Koch Theater, could continue to climb the rankings as Christmas grows closer.

TicketNews Exclusive Rankings and Power Scores are based on ticket sales from the TicketNetwork Exchange™. Two factors are used to calculate a power score: total ticket sales from the given event and total ticket sales within the category. Since the sum of all events’ power scores equals 100 in any given category, an individual event’s Power Score represents its category-specific significance. Top Event Power Scores should only be used to compare events within a particular category, and not across categories.
