Broadway box office was down nearly 10% from the previous week’s Labor Day holiday tourist bulge, with the 25 productions grossing a total $25,965,471. Attendance of 224,402 was steady with the prior week, though should have been better: The roster count was up by two over the previous week’s 23 shows.

Just about every production on the roster, though, reported a box office slip from the week before, not surprising given the back-to-earth post-holiday frame (figures reflect the week ending Sept. 8).

The production took in $623,475, a negligible .5% slip, with attendance at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre at 7,718, a strong 93% of capacity.

Beginning previews was the much-anticipated The Great Society, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan
