Broadway Revenues Rise Over 4 Percent

Thursday, April 01, 2010

Theatres have made more than $228 million at the box office so far this year, compared to around $216 million this time last year, according to The New York Times.

The Times also reports that Broadway revenues are up because more theatre goers have attended shows this year. In the first quarter of 2010, around 2.7 million people went to Broadway shows, 1.7 percent more people than this time last year.

"The Addams Family" is one musical that's doing well, although it's still just in preview performances. The Times reports the show, which is created by The New Yorker cartoonist Charles Addams, has made more than $1 million weekly for three weeks in a row.
