HERE'S WHAT'S NEW:

Well, my "little vacation" ended up lasting two and a half years... funny how life steers your life in directions you weren't planning on. I'll start off with occasional posts, but I fully plan to resume this blog to full speed by the new year.

I hope you'll come back for frequent visits, to see new reviews, to share opinions, to take a survey (or two), and to celebrate the shows and show people that have made the TheatreScene!

Broadway Box Office: Week 14: 08.27 - 09.02.12

Broadway Box Office
Week #14 of the 2012 - 2013 Season
August 27 - September 2; 22 Productions



Week 14 of the 2012-2013 season saw the closing of the most popular play this season and the Tony winner for Best Play.  The Best Play, Clybourne Park, saw a slight uptick in its final week of performances, while One Man, Two Guvnors went out with a bang, setting a House Record at the Music Box Theatre.  Speaking of setting records, for the 40th time, The Book of Mormon set a House Record at the Eugene O'Neill, continuing its march toward the $200 average ticket price.  Overall, the box office was slightly up, though more significantly, only 5 shows dropped at the box office, money wise.  Not a bad way to end the summer.  Finally, Nice Work If You Can Get It made a stunning rebound, what with the return of Matthew Broderick to the show, up 9 spots on the chart.  Though not a total surprise, considering its big improvements both at the box office and attendance over the past two weeks, War Horse announced its closing on January 6.
