The final week in the month of May features a show that hasn’t made the top five list often. A Raisin in the Sun comes in second this week after seeing the largest increase in ticket price over the course of the week. Cinderella returns after falling off for a week again, and is the most expensive ticket of the week, while Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Motown and Kinky Boots finish off the list. All show prices have been trending upwards this week, and no show has an average price below $400. Here is the list of the top 5 Broadway tickets of the week:
5/28 - Cinderella | Avg. Price: $527.61 | Get-in Price: $230
Cinderella tops the list, with the only show averaging over $500 for the week. Cinderella tickets are up 13 percent for the week, which is actually just middle of the pack for this list. While the get-in price of $230 is high, it’s another figure that lands in the middle for the five top shows.
5/30 - A Raisin in the Sun | Avg. Price: $450.08 | Get-in Price: $232
