Never Mind!

Never Mind!

My apologies for the lateness of this post, but given all the new shows that opened this season in the wake of the large spate of winter closures, it appears that Broadway's box office is humming along quite well after all.

My apology (and embarrassment) actually runs a little deeper, for I had added my own voice to those bemoaning the Great White Way's fortunes on more than one occasion.

Do I now feel more than a little silly? Absolutely, especially in light of the Broadway League's audaciously timed increase in TKTS fees, even after they successfully defeated New York State's proposed ticket taxes.

UPDATED (5.27.09, 10:15 a.m. EDT): Now comes word that Broadway actually broke a record by taking in more business this past year than during the previous season. That's $943.3 million versus $937.5 million for 2007-08, albeit with fewer seats sold.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
