A busy week on Broadway saw three official openings (including the Take Me Out return) and three additions to the line-up of previewing productions, with grosses for the 34-show roster jumping by 8% (to $32,314,920) over the previous week.
Attendance for the week ending Nov. 13 was up 11% to 272,232. Starting with the openers, all critically well-received: Kimberly Akimbo at the Booth took in $491,165 and filled 94% of seats; Mike Birbiglia: The Old Man & the Pool played to 92% of capacity at the non-prof Lincoln Center’s Vivian Beaumont, grossing $290,305 for seven performances; and Take Me Out took $457,404, filling 56% of seats at the Schoenfeld. (Note: opening night weeks include press and other comps).
New to the roster were a trio of productions that began previews: Some notable performers last week: Cancelations impacted some productions, with A Strange Loop losing one performance due to a non-Covid illness and grossing $514,415, 85% of capacity at the Lyceum; KPOP missing two performances and grossing $134,348 at Circle in the Square with a $37 average ticket price; and Funny Girl slipping at bit (to a still strong $1,640,222) with the absence (due to a back injury) of Lea Michele for one performance.Read more on deadline.com
