New York -  Superstorm Sandy, which darkened Broadway while smashing into New York City last week, predictably ravaged the box offices around Times Square, with shows losing more than $6m from the previous week.

The Broadway League, the national trade association for the Broadway industry, released data on Tuesday that said all shows were affected. One of the hardest hit was the musical Nice Work If You Can Get It, which lost $538 853.

The total haul for the week ending Sunday was close to $14m, well below the total from the previous week of $20m.

Attendance to Broadway also fell from 214 909 to 149 443.

The storm struck last week Monday and shuttered all 40 Broadway theaters until Wednesday. All shows were up and running by Thursday.
