Broadway Grosses w/e 01/14/2019: As Four Shows Pack It In, Broadway Goes into Hibernation

In the first non-holiday week of 2019, grosses continued to slim for the street and for most productions. Four fewer shows on the boards meant a 15% drop in overall grosses to $32M.

Overall, figures for the season continue to outpace last year both in grosses and attendance.
