Another Record Year For Broadway

Broadway.jpg As the blog NewYorkology pointed out last week, Broadway set another attendance record for the 2006-2007 season (May 29, 2006-May 27, 2007). Attendance rose 2.6% to 12.31 million. That’s nearly double the attendance number that Broadway theaters slumped to during the 1985-1986 season.
At least half of all people in attendance during 2006-2007 were tourists. Most people (10.8 million tickets) attended musicals. Only 1.5 million tickets were sold for plays. The average ticket price rose to $76.23 and theaters grossed $938.5 million.
You can find Broadway season statistics from 1959 through 2006 on page 240 in the 2007 World Almanac.
