Broadway Box Office Tweets - Week Ending January 16, 2011

If you follow me on Twitter, you most likely know that each Monday, I offer my quick analysis of each preceding week's box office on the Great White Way. Last week's results were delayed until today because of the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Holiday.
