The Great White Way

How much money are different shows raking in? What are the characteristics of the highest grossing shows? What does the revenue for hits look like compared to new shows?

This summer I spent 6 weeks in New York City and became obsessed with seeing as many Broadway shows as I could. I became a pro in scoring (as) cheap (as Broadway can be) tickets. I was curious how much money different shows were raking in and if any other show was as difficult to score tickets to as Hamilton. I decided to create a visualization that looked at the revenue for the first four months of the 2018-2019 Broadway Season. The viz can be viewed on Tableau Public here.
