The Book Of Mormon Holds Strong In Hard Broadway Times

Filed under: Broadway Babies

book-of-mormon-broadway-post-labor-day-sales.jpg

We're in that time of year that if you want to go see a Broadway show on the cheap, you'd better move it. From post-Labor Day through Thanksgiving, the Great White Way doesn't see very much action and the theaters all feel the sting right at the beginning of September.

That is, except for The Eugene O'Neill Theatre, home of The Book Of Mormon. In Broadway's annual post-Labor Day slump, the show managed to outsell standards like Wicked and The Lion King, pulling in $1,293,582 last week! Wicked, which has a higher capacity at the Gershwin than the Eugene, only brought in $1,293,582.

God must be on those boys side! Hows it feel to be smooth sailing, Trey Parker and Matt Stone???

Hurricane Irene Cancellations Send Broadway Box Office Sales Down

Broadway Hurricane

Broadway took a box office hit as Irene blew through, due to all the show cancellations.

The week’s gross went down 36 percent according to data from The Broadway League. Mainly because attendance was almost cut in half.

The Broadway League said all performances scheduled for Saturday and Sunday were cancelled due to:

“…suspension of public transportation, evacuations of many areas, closures of some highways and potential bridge closures by government authorities in preparation for Hurricane Irene.”

There were at least a few shows that did well despite the hurricane. One of them, The Book of Mormon, grossed 106% of it’s usual weekly, which was $786,459.

At least overall Broadway is still growing. Season-to-date they’re actually up $2,900,000; an increase of 1.1%. Yay broadway!

Broadway Has A Record-Breaking '10-'11 Season!

broadway-has-a-record-breaking-10-11-season

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!
