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.
