Wow! Guess people DO still go to the theatre!

The Broadway League is reporting that the 2010-11 Broadway season broke two records, reaching a box office high of 1.08 billion and an attendance of 12.53 million!

Apparently, this partly has to do with the fact that the season was an extra week long, which happens every seven years to help balance out bookkeeping variations like leap years, etc., but also because 42 shows opened over the course of the season!

We imagine shows like The Book of Mormon, Catch Me If You Can, and even the god-forsaken Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark certainly had to do with a lot of the cash flow this year, as well!

Broadway's certainly had a pretty exciting year!

Well done, guys!

    Were ticket prices also up? That would add box office too.

    How To Succeed in Business was probably a big seller too.
