Following two weeks of strong gross and attendance figures, Broadway’s box office dipped a bit during the week ending April 14 (the 47th of the season). Collectively, Broadway’s 36 currently running shows earned $35,535,214, representing a 9.9% decrease from the week ending April 7. Attendance during this week of the season saw a smaller decrease; Main Stem admissions were down 4.3% compared to the previous week. Theaters were filled to 91% capacity, down a mere 2.8 percentage points from the week prior.

Despite these week-over-week decreases, this week proved to be significant in the context of the entire 2023-2024 Broadway season. The week ending April 14 was the fourth-highest grossing week of the season, only falling behind the past two weeks (one of which encompassed the historically robust Easter week) and the week ending Dec. 31, 2023

Attendance-wise, this was the second-best attended week of the season to date, outpacing the high admissions totaled during the busy Thanksgiving and Christmas/New Year’s weeks. It also proved 3.2% greater than the 47th week of last season.
