It Was A Very Good Year

“Broadway has had a record-breaking year for attendance and box office earnings, thanks to the success of plays such as Julia Roberts’ Three Days of Rain. Theatregoers on Broadway topped the 12 million mark for the first time, with a strong attendance by tourists. Ticket sales increased 12 per cent to $861.6m during the 2005-2006 season, according to the League of American Theatres and Producers.” Strangely, though, there was no increase in the percentage of Broadway shows that turn a profit.
