Broadway Show Ticket Sales Analysis w/e 1/12/2014

MacbethBROADWAY TICKET SALES FALL DRAMATICALLY
Though it’s always expected that Broadway revenue will start to dry up in January after enjoying a considerable boost during the winter holiday season, it’s still a striking blow to see overall Broadway sales plummet from last week’s $31,143,670 down to $19,579,699. January and February are typically among the bleakest months where Broadway ticket sales are concerned.

THE TRAGEDY OF MACBETH ENDS
The latest revival of William Shakespeare’s often-produced tragedy Macbeth, this one starring Ethan Hawke in the title role, concluded its limited run at Lincoln Center this past Sunday.  WIth less-than-stellar reviews and little buzz, the production did middling business.  Its final week reflected this, with 82.08% attendance at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre and an average paid admission of $65.32.

The following are the Broadway ticket sales numbers for the week ending January 12, 2014:
