The Top 5 Broadway Tickets Of The Week (6/16)
June 16, 2014
Tickets are selling fast this week. The average price for two shows is over $1,000, when most weeks no show comes close to reaching that figure. Prices have climbed all week, with all but one show seeing significant price increases. The list is mostly comprised of regulars for this list, with the one newcomer a show that is anything but new. The Broadway adaptation of the classic Disney tale, The Lion King, makes its way into the top five list.
6/18 Hedwig and the Angry Inch | Avg. Price: $1,824.79 | Get-in Price: $238
Prices have skyrocketed this week with the average price up to $1,824.79 after a 26 percent upwards trend over the week. That average is quite high when you factor in the get-in price, that’s just at $238. But Hedwig and the Angry Inch tickets have been on this list ever since the show opened, regularly taking the top spot.
6/20 Macbeth | Avg. Price: $1,194.60 | Get-in Price: $1,095
Prices remain high for Macbeth in the first few weeks the show has been open. While the average price of the show is well below Hedwig and the Angry Inch at $1,194.60, the increase was the largest of the week. The average ticket price has increased by 48 percent over the last week, and the get-in price is the highest on this list by far. Macbeth tickets have a get-in price of $1,095, while no other show on the list is above $300.
6/18 Kinky Boots | Avg. Price: $439.62 | Get-in Price: $163
Kinky Boot tickets have increased 17 percent over the last week for an average price of $439.62. Kinky Boots has been a regular on this list despite being out on Broadway for over a year now. The get-in price is also third on this list at $163.
6/22 Motown | Avg. Price: $407.66 | Get-in Price: $106
Motown is another show that constantly finds itself in the top five, even though prices have actually gone down over the week. Motown tickets are down two percent for an average price of $407.66. The get-in price is the lowest of the week at $106.
6/18 The Lion King | Avg. Price: $339.40 | Get-in Price: $159
The Lion King makes a rare appearance on this list, just snagging the bottom spot. Lion King tickets are up 23 percent over the week for an average price of $339.40. The get-in price is almost as high as it is for Kinky Boots at $159.
