Total Gross: $20,663,375
Total Attendance 241,826 @87.20%
Average Ticket price: $80.07
Observations: 29 shows, 4 new openings, 5 shows in previews. With the new season well under way there are a lot of shows to choose from and audiences are turning out to see them. Total attendance is only 4,000 people less than the same week last year. High average ticket prices boosted by the mega-hits while some of the newer productions averaging well below 50% of the top ticket price and in one case less than 25% of the top ticket price. With 5 more shows to open this month, almost all the Broadway houses will be full. Prediction: while many shows will last through the holidays, several will close in January February as it does not look like the audience is ready to diversify their entertainment purchases past the sure-fire hits, star studded events or new hits.
