Broadway Show Ticket Sales Analysis w/e 3/02/2014

DISNEY’S ALADDIN BEGINS PREVIEWSAladdin on Broadway
Aladdin began previews on February 26, 2014 with strong sales.  Already one of the top 10 grossing shows after only seven performances in five days, the Broadway comedy has already sold out in it’s first week in previews with 100% capacity at an average paid admission of $80.44.  The Broadway ticket price point seems a bit low for a Disney production showcasing music by Alan Menken in this Disney classic, but this may be due to the limited time pre-sale discount offers that were available in the beginning of January.  Aladdin fans definitely took advantage of the Broadway show discount while it lasted!

The following are the Broadway ticket sales numbers for the week ending March 2, 2014:

Broadway Show Ticket Sales Analysis w/e 2/23/2014

ALL THE WAY BEGINS STRONG BUT NOT ALL THE WAY YET
All The Way began previews just two weeks ago and already made the top half spectrum of the Broadway Show Ticket Analysis Chart (see below) with the Broadway ticket gross of $726,190.  Not too shabby for a Broadway show that has not even opened yet but Broadway ticket sales may be affected by the star playing Lyndon B. Johnson, Breaking Bad’s Brian Cranston allowing the show to hold an average Broadway ticket price of $95.79.  Gross ticket sales may be high in relation to the other Broadway shows but average capacity of the Neil Simon Theatre was at a mere 66.64%. Achieving the gross potential for ticket sales will require the show to go All The Way!

MOTHERS AND SONS FEATURING TYNE DALY PREVIEWS
Mothers and Sons, featuring American stage/screen actress, Tyne Daly, began previews on February 23, 2014. Though it seems to be the lowest grossing show according to the Broadway Show Ticket Analysis chart below, it is only considering one performance. Next week’s sales should better indicate where the Broadway show stands in relation to the other Broadway shows.

The following are the Broadway ticket sales numbers for the week ending February 23, 2014:
