Broadway theater grosses higher in 2008-2009 season

NEW YORK -- Even during a recession, Broadway managed to hold its own.

Grosses for plays and musicals during the 2008-2009 season were a bit higher than the previous year.

That set a new record, although attendance slipped during the 52-week period. The Broadway League, an industry trade association, says the season's 43 shows grossed about US$943.3 million, compared to US$937.5 the year before.

It was the highest number of new productions since 50 opened during the 1982-1983 season.

Attendance was 12.15 million, compared to 12.27 million during the 2007-2008 season.

The League's figures were approximate after factoring in estimated grosses for the now-closed "Young Frankenstein."
