Broadway shows experienced a 17% decline in attendance during the 2022-23 season compared to the pre-COVID 2018-19 season, with safety concerns cited as a major reason for the drop, particularly among suburban residents.

The Broadway League reported selling 12.3 million tickets, significantly fewer than the previous non-pandemic year.

A survey of 1,700 Broadway ticket buyers found that 50% of suburbanites haven’t returned due to safety concerns, and 41% are visiting Manhattan less often for leisure. (Trending: Pro Sport Announces Shock Decision On Transgender Athletes)

Times Square Alliance president Tom Harris, said, “As witnessed by millions worldwide and the hundreds of thousands of revelers who enjoyed a safe and joyous New Year’s Eve this week, Times Square is one of the safest neighborhoods in all of NYC thanks to the hardworking men and women of the NYPD.”
