The Weekly Broadway grosses of 05/29 provide us no significant shift in the standing. The leaders continue their streak, while others wave their last goodbyes to the Broadway audience.
Broadway Weekly top grosses, 05/29
The Music Man leads the way with a weekly gross of $3.2 million. It is followed by Hamilton and The Lion King with weekly grosses of 2.3 and 2 million respectively. Plaza Suite, Wicked, and The Cursed Child are staying strong.
No significant shifts appeared last week. For Colored Girls has finished its run at the Booth Theatre on June 5. The show received some Tony Awards nominations and now all that its left for the cast is to pray for the best outcome.
Almost Famous has confirmed its arrival on Broadway on October 11 at one the Shubert theaters. Others are about to close. The biggest show preparing for curtains this week is Take Me Out. The Scott Elis’ directed show will have its final show at the Helen Hayes on June 11.
Another closing Broadway show is How I Learned to Drive. Sunday, June 12 will mark the show’s last performance, so if you’ve missed it, then quickly head to the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.
Off-Broadway will bid farewell to Wish You Were Here, Golden Shield, and The Lucky Star.
Eighteen shows operate at a near-full capacity. Of them – two have a capacity of more than 100%, so these tickets are in exceptional demand.
As usual, Hadestown is in the highest demand on Broadway. Tickets are like an escape from Hadestown – they exist and are possible to find, but at a certain price.
- Broadway.com has tickets starting at $79. Add to this a service fee of $12, and you’ll have to pay $91 for the cheapest option, which is almost sold out. Most of the available tickets cost $120+ without the fees.
- If you’re planning to visit Hadestown a month ahead, then consider Ticketmaster an option. The cheapest tickets on one of the biggest resellers on the market start at $169 with fees included. Ticketmaster is a worthwhile option for a last-minute buy.
- Despite promoting cheap tickets at only $59, TodayTix has literally a handful of those, scattered somewhere a month or maybe two ahead. Their cheapest offer starts at $99 + $12.50 in fees for a ticket.
- Broadway Pass has a good amount of tickets in stock. Their starting prices begin at $99, and although rare, they still can be found. Another pro of this smaller reseller is that they do not charge service fees.
