Broadway’s Record Year

“Ticket sales were $825m in 2005, up from $749m the previous year, reported the League of American Theatres and Producers. Although ticket prices did rise in 2005, an extra 650,000 visited Broadway theatres this year. Of the total audience increase of 650,000 over 2004, according to the League’s data, it’s important to realise that ticket sales for plays alone were up by 530,000.”
