Broadway Box Office Tweets Tony Edition - Week Ending June 13, 2010Broadway Box Office Tweets Tony Edition - Week Ending June 13, 2010
If you follow me on Twitter, you'll know that each Monday, I offer my quick analysis of each preceding week's box office on Broadway.
This past week was a particularly good one for the Great White Way as box office totals swelled by just over $2 million more than the previous week, no doubt as audiences flocked to see all the Tony nominated shows prior to Sunday night's award ceremonies.
For your viewing pleasure, here are my tweets in chronological order for the week ending June 13, 2010:
