July 4th week taking its toll on Broadway yet again. The numbers should creep back up in the coming weeks, though Merrily’s closing may balance things out a bit. 


Oh look, a bibu!

These grosses aren't that bad considering the holiday weekend. Three shows closed the week prior, too. Have to wonder with the heat wave if locals not going down to a beach opted to see a show.


A Chorus Line revival played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

I was thinking the same thing- for a holiday week, this is still pretty good.

Except for Home. Even with 4 performances, yikes.

Three less shows played last week compared to the same week last year, and still both attendance figures and cumulative gross are higher now. 

Then again, Merrily wasn’t playing this time in 2023, so take this with a grain of salt. 


Oh look, a bibu!

Not a bad week considering the holiday. Merrily's numbers are still insane to look at even after first hearing the news yesterday.

Water For Elephants seems to be losing some steam.

Was Eddie out last week? Why is Cabarets drop so significant?

Eddie didn’t perform his standard Monday show (7/1) or the Sunday replacement for the 4th (7/7).

Also, why did Home only have 4 performances?

Remove Merrily and you're left with 4 shows less than this time last year and still a higher overall gross and attendance.

Why did HOME only play 4 shows last week? Was that always planned?

W4E needs to get its gross back above a million or else it's gone.

Really good start for OH, MARY! with just 6 preview performances.

If Water for Elephants doesn't pick it up, they might not even bother replacing Grant.

I heard &juliet and Suffs are eyeing a January closing. I feel like elephants and notebook could run through the year and close in January too. Good for great gatsby, a hit is a hit.

Yes, but… Gatsby really seems to be a financial hit with more than one million every week.

Merrily’s top ticket states $949, but we know some were going for $1299 in the final week. Anyone have insight on the discrepancy? 

Ready for some stunt casting for &Juliet. I truly think this show would work wonderfully with some 90s or 00s pop stars.

The most reliable figure to look at to judge a show's financial health is the average ticket price. A show that still has an ATP in the $100s, even low $100s, still has life left in it. The musicals that are playing in the 1000-seat playhouses are not really in trouble if they are still commanding a figure in that range. Yes, they have discounts in the market, but they are still commanding enough full price business to keep that average high. They may no longer cross the $1 million mark reliably every week, but several of them are budgeted so that they can run quite successfully in the $900K and $800K range. The shows that have ATPs in the $80 range or lower, especially some of the big shows in big musical theatres, are surviving on discounts and are much more in danger of potentially closing.

Yeah, and it will still be YOU!


The idea is to work and to experiment. Some things will be creatively successful, some things will succeed at the box office, and some things will only - which is the biggest only - teach you things that see the future. And they're probably as valuable as any of your successes. -Harold Prince

I wish they would bring back the gross potential. That was always such a fascinating number.

I think with dynamic pricing more in practice nowadays it's harder to calculate gross potential since it can change week to week by increasing/decreasing premium ticket prices.

Nowadays I look at average ticket price and % capacity.

The gross potential is very much known on the producer and landlord's side even with variable pricing.

It was a deliberate choice by the League to omit that information from weekly reports (one of many poor decisions by the League surrounding and following the shutdown).

You are certainly entitled to "feel like" some shows will close in January, but bruh absolutely no one hear believes you "heard" anything about &Juliet or Suffs. And if they both do close in January (possible, sure) it will still not make anyone retroactively think you have some inside scoop, trust.

We saw the various asking prices on the website (or at the box office) but do we have any idea if anyone actually paid $1,299 or $1,499? The results suggest no, that the top price they actually got was $949 (someone could have paid more from a scalper but I'm not counting that). The information could be wrong, of course, but I wonder if anyone actually paid more than a grand.
