The financial fallout from hurricane Sandy continues on Broadway.
Every show took a beating last week according to data released today by the Broadway League.
All told, Broadway shows lost roughly $8.5 million in ticket sales as a result of cancelled performances based on a comparison of box office grosses during Sandy and the equivalent period last year.
For the week ending Sunday Nov. 4, ticket sales were down $6.5 million from the previous week for a gross of $13.6 million.
But even with the storm, one musical was sold out last week -the popular Book of Mormon.
Other shows with mostly full theaters last week were Glengarry Glen Ross, Once, The Lion King and Rock of Ages.
