Why did so many big earners have seemingly little to no dip in attendance, but hundreds of thousands less in sales?!

They sell tickets that cost less?

Discounts, comp tickets, and promotions? I'm just guessing, though.

Wicked and The Lion King also had nine shows the previous week. This past week they were back down to eight performances.

Not a bad week for the two family-friendly shows, 'Cinderella' and 'Aladdin'. Tourist shows like 'Les Miserables and 'Jersey Boys' did just fine.

The $20 average ticket would, in general, be a good thing to make Broadway more accessible, especially for Millennials like myself. But in this case, ouch indeed. If it doesn't get any nods tomorrow, it will be the first domino to fall.

Oh, OK, didn't realize they had 9 shows the previous week. I could see some fluctuation for some shows, but usually Wicked, Lion King, Matilda, etc., are pretty consistent.

Last one I remember was HIGH, which I think actually dropped as low as $17. It closed the week in opened. Oddly enough, it was also in the Booth.

The Blonde in the Thunderbird had a week where its average ticket price was $11.02.

"Once" isn't closing. It's likely still hitting it's weekly nut and I think it'll still do well over the summer. I'd expect Once to stay around at least until the end of the year.
A Chorus Line played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013.

I agree. I remember a lot of chatter about Mamma Mia on its way out and now it grossed over $800K last week. It will have a good summer.

I'm highly disturbed that any show has a ticket price over $300. WTF, $477 Book of Mormon?? YOU AREN'T MADONNA.

No, EVEN MADONNA DOESN'T CHARGE THAT MUCH.

Yeah, it's disgusting. Those dudes aren't hurting for money. That is why I will never see that show.

Prices like that aren't the producers' fault. Of course they aren't innocent in the problem or certainly victims, but remember that there's a market for it and in a market there's supply and demand.

$477 tickets would not persist if they weren't purchased. And MORMON has sold every ticket it's put on sale since it opened. So this is what the market yields. If there's disapproval of the producers, there must be equal disapproval of the purchasers of those tickets, for they allow it those prices to go on.
Words don't deserve that kind of malarkey. They're innocent, neutral, precise, standing for this, describing that, meaning the other, so if you look after them you can build bridges across incomprehension and chaos. But when they get their corners knocked off, they're no good anymore…I don't think writers are sacred, but words are. They deserve respect. If you get the right ones in the right order, you can nudge the world a little.

Nope, just those who skip the lines, don't pay their dues, and buy their way in.

Wow, $600 bucks to see Madonna? That's about $600 too much.
