Broadway Show Ticket Sales Analysis w/e 6/15/2014

“All The Way” Gaining Momentum

All the Way is the Tony Award winning Best Play of 2014, and that success is showing at the box office.  It helps that the star of the show is Bryan Cranston, one of America’s most celebrated actors for such performances as his leading role as Walter White on the television show Breaking Bad.  Written by Robert Schenkkan and directed by Bill Rauch, this play has been doing excellently at the box office since it began performances on February 10, 2014.  It has been hovering over the $1 million mark, with a steady increase since the awards season has begun.  But after this play has shown well above others in several awards ceremonies, national word has spread.  In the week ending June 15, 2014, the show grossed $1,229,459, which was an increase of $288,909, the highest increase of any show this week.  With an average paid ticket of $128.90, the show reached 89.86% of its gross potential.  This is a very high number specifically for a play, putting it in competition against some of the top earning musicals.

“Holler if Ya Hear Me” Still Struggling

This Tupac Shakur inspired musical opened at an unusual time, too late for Tony Award consideration and when the summer season is beginning, when many tourists go for lighter musical fare.  Though a musical, this show deals with themes that may be traditionally less desirable in the warmer season.  Though the show will open later this week and is still in previews, it is still abnormally low that it only grossed $163,586 in a week of eight performances.  With an average paid admission of $24.35, the show only made 18.32% of its gross potential, by far the lowest of any show this past week.  The second lowest show in terms of reaching its gross potential, Mothers and Sons, just announced that it will be closing at the end of next week.  With a weekly gross of $156,116, it only grossed 20.34% of its gross potential.

Other Shows Having Difficulties

There are other shows that are earned less than half of their gross potential, many of which are produced by not for profit theatre institutions.  Casa Valentina, produced by Manhattan Theatre Club at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, only earned 43.73% of its gross potential, though it was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Play, which it did not win.  Furthermore, Violet, a musical produced by the Roundabout Theatre Company, only grossed 44.42% of its potential.

Broadway Show Ticket Sales Analysis w/e 6/08/2014

This week’s notable movements on Broadway are:

In Anticipation of the Tony Awards, Nominated Shows See Boost

The week ending June 8, 2014 culminated in the 68th Annual Tony Awards, held at Radio City Music Hall.  Almost every single nominated show saw an increase in ticket sales this week form the week prior.  The winner for Best Musical, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, earned a weekly gross of $733,879, which was an increase of $32,900 from the week before.  It will be interesting to watch how much this gross increases now that the award has been taken home.  Furthermore, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, which also received a slew of nominations and won four awards, grossed $1,021,708 this past week, which was an increase of $42,465 from the week prior.  This is an extremely hot ticket, which is a major achievement with its countercultural themes.  The winner of Best Play, All the Way, earned $940,550 in the week approaching the Tony Awards, which was an increase of $27,635 from the week before.  Finally, the winner of Best Play Revival was A Raisin in the Sun, which earned a whomping $1,226,464, up $40,888 from the week before.

Long-Running Shows Slow Down

In contrast, many long-running shows saw a decrease in sales this week.  Mamma Mia! earned $89,116 than it did the week before, Motown the Musical went down by $21,038, the 2012 Best Musical winner Once decreased by $24,401 this week, Rock of Ages went down by $12,187, The Lion King saw a decrease of $9,801, The Phantom of the Opera went down by $95,397, and even the megahit The Book of Mormon saw a decrease in weekly grosses this week of $36,161.  This goes to show that theatregoers are indeed paying attention to awards news, and they are flocking to see the shows that were in contention for awards this past Sunday evening.

Holler if Ya Hear Me is Not Being Heard

This week saw the beginning of previews for a new musical based on the music and life of Tupac Shakur: Holler if Ya Hear Me.  With an almost full week of seven performances, this musical only grossed $148,964, which is only 19% of the show’s gross potential.  The average ticket price was only $24.10, as the production must have been heavily discounting and also offering many complimentary seats, still managing to fill 81.2% of its audience capacity.  In a noisy climate with much awards excitement, it makes sense that this unusually themed musical would get lost in the undertow.  However, once reviews come out after its opening on June 19, 2014, the show will have more of a chance of catching wind.

Broadway Show Ticket Sales Analysis w/e 6/01/2014

This week’s notable movements on Broadway are:

An unequivocal loss for Broadway

In the week ending June 1, 2014, without fail, every single Broadway show grossed less money than it did the week before.  The fact that there was not a single exception to this fact is astonishing.  It is true that last week was a particularly good week for Broadway, with the entire industry earning $1.5 million dollars more than it had the week previously.  Still, the entire industry seems to have lost a “double or nothing” bet, as this week the gross was over $3 million less than it was last week.  The show that lost the least was Hedwig and the Angry Inch, which only grossed $3,232 less than it had the week before.  The biggest loser was Pippin, which earned only $488,036, a loss of $206,509 from the week before.  Still, despite this fact, four shows earned more than 100 percent of their gross potential (which is accounted for by the price of premium seats): these were Wicked which earned 107.35% of its potential, A Raisin in the Sun which grossed 108.45% of its potential, The Book of Mormon, which reaped in 117.07% of its potential, and Hedwig and the Angry Inch, which managed to earn 117.36% of its gross potential.

What could explain this phenomenon?

The previous week included Memorial Day weekend, during which tourists flocked to New York City, and New Yorkers took themselves out to the theatre.  However, this past week, the number of theatregoers not only went back to its pre-Memorial Day levels, but also doubled its loss.  Perhaps there was a saturation point with how much theatre people wanted to see, be they tourists or locals.  Or, perhaps the bout of warm weather and the onslaught of June, marking the true arrival of summer, persuaded people to get out of town for the weekend.  These are all just hypotheses, however, as the market of theatregoers ebbs and flows like any industry, and this week just happened to be a low.

Theatre subsidized by not-for-profits subsists despite low grosses

Shows performing on the lower end of the box office spectrum are often produced by not-for-profit theatre institutions.  Act One, the Lincoln Center bio-play about Moss Hart, earned $395,328 this week, which was only 36.4% of its gross potential.  Casa Valentina, the Tony Award nominated play by Harvey Fierstein about transvestitism in the 1960s, is staying afloat with a gross of only $245,811 because it is produced by Manhattan Theatre Club.  Violet, a musical revival produced by Roundabout Theatre Company, earned only 47.37% of its gross potential, which is particularly low for a musical, and yet it is still surviving.

Broadway Show Ticket Sales Analysis w/e 5/25/2014

Overview of Broadway Ticket Sales for the week ending 5/25/2014

This week saw some changes with overall increase of $1.5 million in tickets sales over the previous week.

Broadway Ticket Sales Picking Up With The Warm Weather And Tourists

Overall, the entire Broadway community saw an increase of $1,508,163 in the week ending May 25, 2014 from its gross of the week before.  The majority of individual shows also saw an increase, with those showing a decrease doing so only slightly.  The biggest increases were seen by long-running musicals, with The Phantom of the Opera going up by $175,375, Cinderella increasing by $174,913, Matilda up by $160,653, Wicked increasing by $126,757, and The Lion King going up by $110,196.  Surprisingly, the biggest decrease was shown by the Tony Award nominated Best Play, and Drama League winner of Best Play, All the Way, which was down $49,238 from the week prior.  However, this decrease is still slight, as All the Way still saw a remarkable gross of $996,622, just slightly off from the million dollar club.  The fact that even the biggest loser did so well supports the observation that this was an overall excellent week for Broadway.  As the summer season is approaching and the school term is ending, more tourists are flocking to New York City to buy theatre tickets, and more New York natives are considering the theatre as a destination for their outings.

2014 Tony Award Nominated Shows Lead The Pack In Ticket Sales Growth

With the Tony Awards just over a week away, it is interesting to see how the most nominated shows are faring at the box office.  Leading the pack with ten nominations, including that for the coveted award of Best Musical, is A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder.  This past week, it saw a respectable gross of $720,993, which was an increase of $64,973 from the previous week.  With an average ticket price of $98.19, ticket buyers are willing to shell out the cash to see this anticipated new show.  The second most nominated show is the musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch, which boasts eight nominations including Best Revival of a Musical.  Though this is considered a revival for purposes of Tony consideration, it is the first time this show has been on Broadway, but not its first time in New York.  Hedwig and the Angry Inch made almost exactly the same amount of money this week as last week, earning $982,475, which was a decrease of just $731 from last week.  Still, this extremely hot ticket show made 117.74% of its gross potential, with fans begging to see Neil Patrick Harris in this transformative performance.

Broadway Show Ticket Sales Analysis w/e 5/18/2014

This week’s notable movements on Broadway are:

“THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY” ENDS ON A HIGH NOTE

The Bridges of Madison County concluded its run on Sunday, May 18, 2014 due to slow ticket sales.  However, the announcement of its closing appears to have attracted last minute ticket buyers who wanted to see the show while they still had a chance.  The show reached its highest gross of its four-month run this past week, earning $590,791, which was an increase of $197,805 from the previous week.  Its second highest grossing week was the week ending March 16, 2014, where it grossed $476,374.  In this past week, the average ticket price was $73.71, which was almost the highest it has been (with the exception of two weeks), proving that audience members were willing to spend a lot of money for the opportunity to see this show.  This proves that slow ticket sales do not necessarily denote a lack of interest in a show; it may just mean that with so much competition on Broadway, a show may not get seen if it doesn’t break through to first or second priority, especially for tourists on vacation.  Furthermore, as successful musicals tend to be long-running, ticket buyers may have expected this show to be around for a while, and when closing was announced, they took advantage of the limited time to buy a ticket.

“ALL THE WAY” HITTING IT BIG

This past week, Robert Schenkkan’s play All the Way grossed $1,045,860, which was an increase of $217,564 from the previous week.  Starring Bryan Cranston as Lyndon B. Johnson, this play just won the Drama League Award for Best Play.  Perhaps the press about this win explains the upsurge in ticket buying, or perhaps interest in this popular show just happened to crescendo this past week, but in any case, this illustrates that All the Way is a strong contender for the Tony Award for Best Play, which will be announced in just a few more weeks.  Its competitors for that honor are Casa Valentina, Outside Mullingar, Act One, and Mothers and SonsOutside Mullingar has already closed, and the other three plays saw modest to no increase in ticket sales this past week.  If financial data has anything to do with awards recognition, then All the Way may just make it “all the way” to the big win.

Broadway Show Ticket Sales Analysis w/e 5/11/2014

This week’s notable movements on Broadway are:

TICKET SALES PICKING UP WITH THE WARM WEATHER
As opposed to the previous two weeks, which showed very slow ticket sales, this past week demonstrated an increase in ticket buying for Broadway.  The largest increase was the new revival of Cabaret, which was up $155,270 from the previous week, reaching an all-time weekly high of $783,761.  Furthermore, After Midnight increased by $135,410, grossing $658,463 in the week ending May 11, 2014.  This show, which was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Musical, has grossed as much as $714,663 in past weeks, but this past week is the best the show has done in months.  Still, that gross only took the show to 66.15% of its gross capacity.

Other shows that saw an increase in sales this past week include Cinderella, which went up by $106,356, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, which increased by $83,180, and the Daniel Radcliffe led play The Cripple of Inishmaan, which went up by $77,998.  Furthermore, The Bridges of Madison County increased by $106,038 after having announced that the show will close on May 18, 2014.  There is one more week of performances for this show to recoup a little more of its investment, but it will surely close at a financial loss.

KINKY BOOTS PLAYED ONLY A HALF WEEK OF PERFORMANCES
At first glance, the weekly gross of $668,658 appears to be an outrageous low for the 2013 Tony Award winning Best Musical Kinky Boots.  The musical has not earned less than $1,173,857 any week of the entire year 2014 so far, and that was on a frigidly cold week in early February.  This past week, it earned $808,892 less than the week before.  However, further examination of the data shows that Kinky Boots still earned 93.08% of its gross potential, as it only played 4 performances in the week ending May 11, 2014.  The reason for this is that it decided to take a short vacation.  From May 8 to May 13, 2014, the Al Hirschfield Theatre went dark, which is very unusual for a Broadway show to do during its run.  The only reason this is possible is because Univision, the international television network, is utilizing the theatre for upfront presentations throughout this period.  How did they convince the Nederlander Organization, who owns the theatre, to allow this?  In addition to paying for rental, Univision is paying for all eight performances that will be missed during that week.

Broadway Show Ticket Sales Analysis w/e 5/04/2014

This week’s notable movements on Broadway are:

TONY NOMINATIONS INCREASE SALES

This past week was a slow one on Broadway overall; however, shows that received Tony Award nominations – especially for Best Musical – saw a jump in sales.  Because it is not always the case that nominations spur sales, it is not clear exactly what caused this year’s jump for nominated shows.  In addition to news coverage and press announcements about the nominations, it is likely that ticket buyers were persuaded by the advertising efforts of producers who touted the nominations online and in print ads.  Furthermore, many individuals may have not been aware that certain shows were even running until the high volume of publicity picked up around the nominations.

A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder led the list of Tony nominated shows, with nominations in 10 categories including Best Musical.  Theatregoers responded to this announcement, as last week’s sales increased to $580,279, a 23% jump from the previous week, and the highest weekly gross yet in the show’s six and a half month run.  Furthermore, a spokesperson for the show said that they also grossed $1.3 million in advance sales following the nominations announcement.  Another show that received a nomination for Best Musical – After Midnight – saw a jump of 7% and reached a weekly gross of $523,053.  A third nominee for that category – Beautiful: The Carole King Musical – set a box office record at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre with a weekly gross of $1,036,646.  Though the fourth nominee, Aladdin, was down slightly from the prior week, it still grossed an impressive $1,176,765.

Furthermore, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, which received the second highest number of nominations including one for Best Revival of a Musical, grossed $993,474, which is a 30% increase from the previous week and a box office record at the Belasco Theatre.  In addition, after being nominated for Best Play, Casa Valentina also saw a 30% jump to the still modest gross of $275,997.  However, the reverse also held true, as shows on their last legs who failed to receive key nominations were only hurt further by the lack of appreciation from the Tony nominating committee.  The Bridges of Madison County, for instance, saw a decrease of $64,998 after failing to be nominated for Best Musical, even after they announced they will be closing on May 18, 2014.

Broadway Show Ticket Sales Analysis w/e 4/27/2014

This week’s notable movements on Broadway are:

A SLOW WEEK FOR BROADWAY
In the week ending April 27, 2014, the vast majority of shows saw a decrease in ticket sales from the previous week.  Even the heavy hitters went down significantly.  For instance, though Wicked and The Lion King still both grossed over two million dollars, Wicked earned $694,805 less and The Lion King earned $399,631 less than the week before.  Other big drops include Matilda, which went down $324,076, Cinderella, which decreased by $293,539, Newsies, which slowed down by $256,702, Rocky, which decreased by $238,855, and The Phantom of the Opera, which went down by $399,865.  Even the mega-hit The Book of Mormon decreased by $15,835.  As this list includes some of the top tourist picks, this goes to show that Broadway was hit hard by the last week of April, presumably because spring break has now ended.  Certain shows showed a slight increase that may appeal less to tourists, including Violet, The Realistic Joneses, The Bridges of Madison County, Mothers and Sons, and Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill.  Though these grosses are still significantly lower than the tourist shows mentioned above, this is further evidence that the overall decrease is due to the slower numbers of tourists flocking to the city this past week.

HEAVY DISCOUNTING
Casa Valentina, Harvey Fierstein’s new play about transvestites in the 1960s, is one of the more notable shows in terms of discounting, as evidenced by these figures.  Though the play grossed only $210,585 this past week, it still played to an average 91.3% capacity, with an average ticket price of only $44.78.  This shows that the play does attract a certain degree of interest from theatregoers, but they are not willing to pay full price.  Furthermore, The Velocity of Autumn had by far the lowest average paid ticket price at $20.77, still only managing to fill up 67.0% average capacity.  With a horrendous weekly gross of $84,521, this show looks to be on its very last legs.  With those numbers, it has definitely been dispersing complementary tickets in an effort to spread word of mouth, but it won’t be able to last long if sales don’t pick up soon.

Two heavy hitting shows, Wicked and The Lion King, both managed to cross the threshold into the two million dollar gross mark this past week.  Whereas grossing over one million dollars is already a significant achievement for any show, even a musical, these two crowd-pleasing musicals continue to show incredible success at the box office.  The reason is that each show played nine performances this past week, which is one higher than the usual 8.  The producers of both shows must have been aiming to capitalize on the higher tourist traffic due to spring break, as well as the finally balmy weather.  Wicked, which has now been running for over 10 years, holds the record for the highest weekly gross of all time, which was $3.2 million over nine performances in the last week of 2013. The Lion King, which has been running since fall 1997, was the highest grossing show of 2013, pulling in $97 million throughout the year.
This past week, Wicked grossed a whomping $2,769,554, which was an increase of $839,192 from the previous week.  With a top ticket price of $300, this show has not resorted to price gauging for premium tickets as much as, say, The Book of Mormon, which charges as much as $477 for premium seats, granted in a smaller theatre.  Filling its 17,352 seats to 100% capacity, Wicked earned 146.44% of its gross potential due to premium ticket pricing.  The Lion King, on the other hand, also made it into the two million dollar club, grossing $2,543,377 this past week over its nine performances, which was an increase of $628,440 from the previous week.  The Lion King had a top ticket price of only $197.50, which demonstrates restraint of the part of the show’s producers, and with an average ticket price of $166.19, the show grossed $102.54% of its gross potential.

OVERALL AN EXCELLENT WEEK
With few exceptions, every show experienced an increase in gross ticket sales in the week ending April 20, 2014.  The four shows that went down did so only slightly, all losing under $100,000 from the previous week. Hedwig and the Angry Inch grossed $68,797 less than last week, presumably due to complimentary press tickets given out in anticipation of its wildly successful opening.  Mothers and Sons, Of Mice and Men, and The Velocity of Autumn all went down a relatively small amount as well.  Overall, however, this was a hugely successful week on Broadway.

Broadway Show Ticket Sales Analysis w/e 4/13/2014

This week’s notable movements on Broadway are:

THE CRIPPLE OF INISHMAAN
This past week, The Cripple of Inishmaan began previews at the Cort Theatre starring Daniel Radcliffe.  With only two performances underway, it is difficult to estimate the success of advance ticket sales for this show, but its early figures look promising.  The show grossed $155,234 over two performances, averaging 99.4% capacity with an average paid admission of $72.78.  Though this ticket price is fairly low, presumably due to discounting as well as complimentary tickets for the creative team, the play still made 94.75% of its gross potential.  Clearly the star power of Daniel Radcliffe has a lot to do with these high numbers, especially in light of the fact that a revival of an Irish dark comedy may not otherwise do so well.  This is a transfer from a West End revival of the show, also starring Daniel Radcliffe.

REVIEWS DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Two straight plays that opened last week to positive reviews saw a significant increase in ticket sales.  A Raisin in the Sun starring Denzel Washington was already faring quite well, selling out during previews.  The play even grossed over one million dollars for two weeks in a row during previews, a significant coup for a straight play.  However, in the week leading up to the show’s opening, the weekly gross fell to $929,151.  Fortunately, after the play opened on April 3rd to laudatory notices, audiences responded with ticket purchases, as this past week the play had its highest weekly gross yet: $1,182,511.
More notably, The Realistic Joneses also saw a stark increase in sales following its opening.  The reason this increase is more notable than that of A Raisin in the Sun is because the play is written by Will Eno, a playwright only theatre die-hards would know, and it stars famous actors who are not nearly as famous as Denzel Washington.  Though this play grossed less than half as much as Raisin, it still saw a steep increase of $107,825 from the previous week.  After the play opened on April 6th, The New York Times declared it a Critics’ Pick, and many other reviewers responded strongly as well.  Therefore, these figures show how theatregoers indeed respond to published praise, which is good news for producers who rely on critical support to demonstrate the merits of their shows without recognizable names to boost the box office.
