*Beginning with 2009, "Gross" represents Gross Gross and "Attendance" represents Total Attendance. For seasons prior to 2009, these numbers represent Net Gross and Paid Attendance respectively.

**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).
