"Life has been good for the Tony Award winners at the box office," reported Crain's New York Business on Friday. "The two most important award-winners, 'Memphis' — which won best musical — and 'La Cage aux Folles' — best musical revival — had big boosts in ticket sales.
"A spokeswoman for 'Memphis' said ticket sales for the show have increased a whopping 300% since [Tonys] night, though she wouldn't release a dollar amount. 'La Cage' sold more than $250,000 worth of tickets the day after winning the Tony, more than twice the usual daily figure." The previous week, "La Cage" sold $642,139. That's about 70% of capacity.
