Square-TA-Logo-grossesNew York City was covered in a blanket of white over the weekend and unfortunately, Broadway suffered.

Soft sales were reported across the board for the week ending February 10, 2013. Only four shows were able to make their way into the millionaire club; Spider-man just barely made the cut with $1,002,910. The Book of Mormon claimed the top spot, but even with its usual 102.63% capacity, the show grossed less this week end than it has since last November.

This month is traditionally a difficult feat for Broadway productions. Even powerhouse show, Wicked has been known to struggle. The show grossed only $1,355,055 for the week ending. This same time last year, the show grossed $1,349,433 (week ending 2/5/12.) Wicked generally enjoys grosses upwards of $1.5 million.

The Heiress, starring Jessica Chastain and Dan Stevens weather the storm well. In its final week of performances the show grossed $650,105 and played to an average capacity of 96.65%.
