Jersey Boys Among One of Two Productions Showing a Box Office Climb Last Week

January 29th, 2006

According to today’s Variety, Broadway box office totals suffered from its usual seasonal slide last week. Rialto grosses for Week 34 (Jan. 16-22) totaled $14,167,168, down about $1.5 million from the previous week, although still a healthy $2 million above the take from the same time last year.

Nearly all of the 25 shows on the boards saw a drop in box office sales, from a few thousand bucks to a hefty $347,764. There were, however, two exceptions: The Phantom of the Opera, climbed about $15,000, perhaps still riding the publicity wave from its record-breaking performance of January 9, and Jersey Boys also held steady, rising $9,000.

Will the Jersey Boys’ box office hot streak continue? Check back tomorrow for an update on Broadway grosses for Week 35.
