Attendance on Broadway was eight per cent lower this summer compared with last year.
The main reasons appeared to be the ongoing failure of some new musicals to attract big audiences, like ”Soul Doctor” and ”Forever Tango” along with a lack of plays and musicals to fill several other Broadway theaters.
High ticket prices may have kept crowds down, although those same expensive tickets helped lift overall box office sales slightly in spite of the lower attendance.
