During its final week on Broadway, Terrence McNally's Mothers and Sons did noticeably better. That didn't make it a sell-out; the struggling show has never been that during its entire run at the Golden. But box office did rise nearly $100,000 to 61% capacity. Nonetheless, box-office take was still a dismal 33% of the potential.
Opening this week was the Tupac Shakur musical Holler If Ya Hear Me at the Palace. The show played two previews and six performances. At just 58%, capacity was not hearty and box office was worse. The ticket windows at the Palace collected only 21% of what they could. Average paid admission was $32.84 — the lowest number by far on Broadway, and the lowest in recent memory.
A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder continued to do well after triumphing at the Tonys. It played to just under capacity and commanded 101% of its box-office potential. Average ticket price was a respectable $125. The musical some thought would best Gentleman's Guide — Beautiful: The Carole King Musical — wasn't suffering for the loss. It played the week to above capacity.
After Midnight, whose number showed well at the Tony ceremony, ran to houses that were 88% full. All The Way, which won the Tony for Best Play, broke Broadway box-office records the week ending June 22. The show grossed $1,425,001 during that week, a bump of nearly $200,000 over last week, and, according to the producers, "more than any other straight play has grossed in one eight-performance week in the history of Broadway."
