*Playing Weeks are calculated by counting the number of weeks during which each show performed in a given year, and then adding up each show's subtotal to determine the overall number of weeks of performance logged by all shows. The result is the best measure of Broadway's productivity (overall activity).

***To account for variances in the calendar year, a 53rd week is added to the season every seven years.

Figures are for North American Tours and do not include non-Equity tours or sit-down productions in Las Vegas.
