The total gross for the past week, week 27 of the current Broadway season, was $34,121,642 (an increase of $2.6 million from last season), and total attendance was 284,569 (an increase of 23,513 from last season). “This Thanksgiving, there’s something for everyone! The cornucopia of our Broadway menu included a variety of plays and musicals to please many tastes. The increase in family-friendly shows combined with powerful new plays representing diverse topics adds spice to our season,” said Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of The Broadway League, in a statement. “There were 36 shows playing, compared to 32 last year during the same week. We are thankful that Broadway continues to be culturally relevant, inspirational, and entertaining!”
The Broadway League, founded in 1930, is the national trade association for the Broadway industry.
