Broadway shows see a dip in attendance due to strong winter weather.

The snow came, but the shows went on! Every Broadway show saw their ticket sales drop this week as Winter Storm Nemo dumped snow on New York leading into the weekend. Despite the inclement weather, audiences still packed the Walter Kerr Theatre to catch Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain as she finished up her run in The Heiress. The show played to a strong 96% capacity. Meanwhile, The Book of Mormon managed to hold on to the top spot for the third week in a row.
