BROADWAY TICKET SALES DOWN BY A MILLION While Broadway experienced a significant jump in overall revenue the previous week, the most recent numbers show that weekly ticket sales have dropped by nearly a million, falling from $25,659,018 to $24,670,329. IL DIVO SERENADES BROADWAYil Divo in black suits The Italian classical/pop quartet Il Divo, accompanied by Broadway and R&B artist Heather Headley, began a Broadway concert engagement this past week with Il Divo: A Musical Affair. If the grosses are any indication, Broadway audiences have been thoroughly charmed by the group, filling the theater to 95.54% capacity and paying the hefty average admission price of $141.57 per ticket. A TIME TO KILL ENDS BROADWAY RUN It was a time to close for A Time to Kill this past Sunday, as the dramatic play (based on the John Grisham novel of the same name) ended its open run after a short and unprofitable time on Broadway. Though the theater was more than 3/4 full during the show's final week, the average paid admission was rather low at just $46.48.
