News   Broadway Grossed Over $1 Billion in 2010
 
Broadway shows grossed approximately $1.037 billion during the 2010 calendar year, according to statistics released by The Broadway League Jan. 4.

Grosses are up from 2009, which brought in $1.004 billion at the box office. Attendance was also up for the year that just ended: 12.11 million in attendance in 2010 versus 11.88 million in 2009.

The new year is also starting out with a bang: In fact, the week ending Jan. 2 was probably the highest-grossing week in recorded history with an intake of $34,997,571.

In a statement Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of The Broadway League, said, "This season’s trend of increasing attendance is reflected in the most recent week as a 3.8% increase over last season-to-date. With week 32 probably being the highest attendance and highest grossing week in Broadway's history, here's hoping the trend continues to the end of the season; and of course, that it spreads across the country!"
