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 $6 million from the previous week.

The Broadway League, the national trade association for the Broadway industry, released data Tuesday that showed, as expected, 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 $13,578,724, well below the total from the previous week of $20,083,783. Attendance went from 214,909 to 149,443.

The storm struck last Monday and shuttered all 40 Broadway theaters until Wednesday. All shows were up and running by Thursday night — but the damage had been done.
