Broadway Grosses w/e 2/4/2018: The Patriots aren’t the only ones who lost last week

Well, we didn’t plunge as much as the Dow, but Broadway grosses surely took a tumble last week.

Or should I say, we took a “fumble.”

Super Bowl Sunday always takes a bite out of Broadway business (as I’m sure it does for so many other businesses around the globe – if you don’t have TVs and sell wings, I’d hate to own a restaurant around game time).

You know things are bad when Hamilton drops below $3mm.  The horror!

But, there are some silver linings in this super-sucky week.  Bernadette Peters is holding her own at Hello, Dolly!, keeping the show a part of the $1mm club, when so many people thought the show would dip down to the $600s and $700s without Bette.  And speaking of stars, what about that John Lithgow pulling in $400k?

But this was the first week in awhile when a few shows on this list will see red on the bottom of their next profit/loss statement.

And for some reason, this week might end up a little worse, as customers take a spending break before February vacations start.

Hamilton might even drop below $2.75mm!

The following are the Broadway grosses for the week ending February 4th, 2018:
