July 21st, 2008

News from BBB-Blogger: JERSEY BOYS set a worldwide production box office record with the week ending July 21, 2008 at Cleveland ’s PlayhouseSquare Theatre. The Tony and Grammy award winning Best Musical that tells the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, grossed $1,883,450 last week, shattering all records set by the production in New York, Chicago, Las Vegas, London and other tour cities. JERSEY BOYS opened to critical acclaim on June 20 at Cleveland’s Playhouse Square Theatre , where it played its final performance on July 20, 2008. The national tour will next play Dallas , Texas , July 23 through August 16, 2008.

This figure also represents a new Playhouse Square record for gross sales in one week. The previous record was established by the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, December 11-16, 2001. While the Radio City record took fourteen performances to set the previous mark of $1,854,894, JERSEY BOYS beat the previous mark by $28,556 and established the new record with only eight performances.

Additionally, JERSEY BOYS broke the Playhouse Square Attendance Record for a regular 8-show week. The previous record was set in June of 1993 by the original tour of The Phantom of the Opera. Phantom’s weekly attendance record of 24,466 was unbroken for the past 15 years until JERSEY BOYS established a new record of 24,655.
