The following box-office information regarding Liza’s at the Palace has been provided by Scott Schechter, author, producer, Minnelli-Garland historian, and developer of Liza’s Web site, OfficialLizaMinnelli.com: http://www.officiallizaminnelli.com/.
"Liza's at the Palace" grossed a total of $3,059,851 for the entire engagement, December 3rd, 2008, through January 4th, 2009 — 22 performances. (Not counting the proceeds from the Dress Rehearsal benefit for the Actor's Fund, on December 2nd, 2008).
Yes, that's slightly over $3 MILLION dollars. Very healthy numbers. Here's a recap of the breakdown:
Week One (Dec. 3rd thru 7th; Four Shows): $554,543. (91% Capacity)
Week Two (Dec. 9th thru 14th; Four Shows): $660,699 (94% Capacity)
Week Three (Dec. 16th thru 21st; Five Shows): $584,637 (69% Capacity)
Week Four (Dec. 23rd thru 28th; Five Shows): $672,776 (79% Capacity)
Week Five (Dec. 30th thru Jan. 4th; Four Shows): $587,196 (91% Capacity)
Again, this is quite an accomplishment to bring-in $3 million dollars to the Broadway box-office during these times — Let alone how much Liza brought-in to other businesses via her fans who came into Manhattan to see her make history — again — at the Palace Theatre on Broadway.
