NEW YORK (AP) -
The total box office take on Broadway dipped over-so-slightly this past season and the number of ticket buyers dipped 6 percent, both blamed in part on Hurricane Sandy.
According to figures released Tuesday by The Broadway League, Broadway shows yielded $1,138,734,331 -- or about $577,000 less than last season. Attendance fell from 12.33 million in the 2011-2012 season to 11.57 million this season.
The League linked the twin decreases to Hurricane Sandy, which darkened Broadway for four days and cost shows more than $8.5 million. Plenty of early closings also added to the decreases.
A total of 46 new shows opened during the season, which began May 28, 2012 and ended Sunday: 15 musicals, 26 plays and five special events or concerts. The 26 plays produced this season set a new record.
