Broadway May 30, 2012 - The Broadway League has released end-of-season statistics for the 2011-2012 season that show that Broadway shows yielded $1.14 billion in grosses and that total attendances reached 12,334,312.

"The variety of shows currently on Broadway succeeds in providing something for everyone, so we're not surprised that this is the highest grossing season in our history," said Charlotte St. Martin, Executive Director of The Broadway League.

To account for variances in the calendar year and in an effort to maintain an end-of-May end to the season, a 53rd week is added to the Broadway season every seven years. For the previous year, the 2010-2011 season, which consisted of 53 weeks, figures totaled $1.08 billion in grosses and 12.53 million in attendance.
