Holland Taylor in Ann

Holland Taylor in Ann

A JUMP IN BROADWAY TICKET SALES
Overall Broadway ticket revenue experienced an increase of close to a million this week, as sales went up from $24,116,852 to $24,997,386. Summer tourism is the most likely driver in this jump in sales figures.

ANN DOES BETTER THAN USUAL ON HER WAY OUT
The one-woman Broadway play Ann, written by and starring Holland Taylor (TV’s Two and a Half Men), concluded its run at Lincoln Center this Sunday, closing out the week with better numbers than usual. At 61.04% capacity, the show had a bigger audience than it’s had since very early in its run. The average paid admission of $64.02 was the best Ann has seen in weeks. However, even though the play has been trailing the Broadway pack for quite some time, it is worth noting that one-person shows have far lower running costs than most other Broadway shows, and this one also happened to be in a rather large theater. Ultimately, the play enjoyed a run of several months, along with critical acclaim and enthusiastic word-of-mouth.

SCHOOL IS OUT AND BROADWAY SHOWS ARE IN
With schools out for the summer, now is a better opportunity than ever for parents — both locals and tourists bringing their families to New York City for vacation — to take their children to shows. Many of Broadway’s most family friendly shows saw an increase in sales this week, including The Lion King, Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark, Cinderella, and Annie.

The following are the Broadway ticket sales numbers from the week ending June 30, 2013:
