Broadway Show Ticket Sales Analysis w/e 9/15/2013

The Glass MenagerieMINOR INCREASE IN BROADWAY SALES
After a significant drop in Broadway ticket revenue last week, sales are up this week, but only by less than $200,000.  The numbers rose from the previous week’s overall take of $18,374,969 up slightly to $18,556,316.

THE GLASS MENAGERIE OFF TO A HEALTHY START
Now in its second week of previews, the revival of Tennessee Williams’ classic drama The Glass Menagerie starring Cherry Jones (Doubt) and Zachary Quinto (the Star Trek movies) is doing fairly good ticket sales, especially for a play.  This week the production filled the theater to 91.32% capacity, with its average paid admission at $81.93 per ticket.

FOREVER TANGO’S LAST DANCE
The limited run production of the dance revue Forever Tango concluded this past Sunday with less-than-stellar ticket sales.  At 54.67% capacity, the theater was only a little more than half full, and average paid admission was just $54.22.

The following are the Broadway ticket sales numbers from the week ending September 15, 2013:
