Broadway Box Office Slips A Tad In First Week Of 2024-2025 Season

Broadway box office was down just a bit last week, about 3%, with the first week of the 2024-2025 season reporting a total gross of $35,295,405 for 34 productions. Total attendance was off just shy of 2% from the previous week, settling at 287,246.

The total attendance figure for the week ending May 26 indicates that a healthy 91% of available seats were filled.

In all, 21 of the 34 productions reported some slippage heading into the Memorial Day Weekend holiday. A couple productions played either fewer or comped shows: Mother Play canceled two performances due to illness in the company, with total receipts dropping $186,154 to $451,737. Cabaret had a fully comped Tuesday performance, with receipts off a commensurate $243,584 to $1,721,760.

Among the shows playing full schedules, the biggest slides in dollar amounts were reported by A Beautiful Noise (down $131,227 to $836,992); The Who’s Tommy ($130,667 to $838,728), Illinoise ($96,070 to $720,409); and The Great Gatsby ($98,829 to $1,180,828). Gatsby remained at a 90%+ capacity/attendance figure, with 93% of seats filled.
