The Idina Menzel showcase If/Then bounced back last week after a slight dip, posting $822,516 in sales for the week ending Sunday, a $49,000 rebound according to box office figures released Monday afternoon by the trade group Broadway League. That was two-thirds of its gross potential at the Richard Rodgers Theatre, and attendance was good, at 88.5 % of capacity for the 1,311-seat house. Pippin recovered a bit as well, increasing $49,756 to $676,450 and filling 97% of the seats at the Music Box.
Overall, the box office was off a bit, by 3%, from the week before: $27,038,224 for week 9 of the season versus $27,867,272 during Week 8. Most of that dip could be attributed to the return to eight performances following a week of niners by The Book Of Mormon and The Lion King.
Of Mice And Men finished its run well in the black and breaking the house record one final time at the Longace, topping $1 million at $1,038,106, up more than $108,000 from the week before. Cast and crew return Tuesday night to film the show for later broadcast by National Theatre Live.
