Broadway Grosses w/e 11/25/2018: No Pardon Needed for Turkeys on Broadway

Box Office Grosses jumped a whopping 18% this week thanks to an influx of audiences enjoying time off for the Thanksgiving holiday and shelling out at an average of $144 per ticket!

Several house records were announced today including the Lyric, Belasco, and St. James (to name a few).

Although the street was up in a record-breaking way, the cream wasn’t spread so evenly. We continue to see just a handful of shows pushing the metrics like grosses and ATP to the rafters.
