Meanwhile, Second Stage’s production of Appropriate made a successful transition from its non-profit run at the Hayes Theatre to a commercial transfer at the Belasco on March 25, grossing $950,927.

As one show ends its run, such as Prayer for the French Republic at the Friedman, which filled 99% of seats and grossed $679,106, there is a constant cycle of new productions and revivals on Broadway. The season to date has seen a total gross of $1,166,956,482, with a cumulative attendance of 9,287,596. The success of these shows hinges on various factors such as star power, critical reception, and audience interest but ultimately, it is the magic of live theater that continues to draw audiences to Broadway.
