Broadway grosses remained steady for the week that ended with Mother’s Day. Pippin and  I’ll Eat You  Last  both broke house records in their theatres with over 100% capacity for the week.  The top 10 shows for the week averaged 94% capacity and $111.64 revenue per seat in their theatres.  It is always amazing when we see Phantom of the Opera sell over $1MM in sales after 23 years on Broadway, proving that love for this show never dies. And it looks like neither Alec baldwin’s Huffington Post article or To Sturridge’s Tony nomination did anything to help Orphans‘ sales last week as it lingers near the bottom of the pack.
