‘Shucked’ Scores Best-Ever $1.1M Gross In Final Week – Broadway Box Office

Winter doldrums and a closing night be damned: Shucked just had a very good week, with news of a planned movie adaptation and its best-ever Broadway gross of $1,111,038.

The Brandy Clark-Shane McAnally-Robert Horn musical, which opened March 8, played its final Broadway performance on January 14 after 28 previews and 327 regular performances. The production ended its run at the Nederlander Theatre to a very nearly full house: 99% of seats were filled.

Broadway box office overall was down a bit from the previous week, with total receipts for the 26 shows tallying up to $27,657,991 for the week ending January 14. That’s a 7% drop from the previous week and 18% less than last year at this time when there were 29 shows running.

Total attendance for the week was 218,287, about the same as the previous week but down 12% from last season. Still, about 90% of total seats were filled.

Among recent arrivals, the acclaimed Prayer For The French Republic, staged by the non-profit Manhattan Theatre Club at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, opened January 9 and grossed $331,741 for seven performances. The venue was 97% filled for the week.

Appropriate, another critical favorite, was down by $145,701 to $452,874, having canceled the Friday evening performance due to an illness in the cast. Days of Wine and Roses, in previews at Studio 54, grossed $490,941; opening night is January 28.

Season to date, Broadway has grossed $997,632,839, with total attendance at 7,859,306.
