The Boss made his Broadway debut this week — and shattered several business records in the procedure.
With only five performances of the concert series Springsteen About Broadway, he grossed an amazing $2.33 million, supporting just Hamilton and Hello, Dolly! — that were playing complete 8-performance schedules. It is the most any series has grossed in the Walter Kerr Theatre, and a fantastic feather in the cap for Jujamcyn, that possesses the place.
The normal ticket to get Springsteen’s introduction went for $497. To put this in perspective, the normal chair for Hamilton hasn’t cost more than $310. It is the greatest in Broadway history. (To be honest, this was more than a holiday weekend, but even so that the margin is stunning).
