The financial fallout from hurricane Sandy continues on Broadway.

Every show took a  beating last week according to data released today  by the Broadway League.

All told, Broadway shows lost roughly $8.5 million in ticket sales as a result of cancelled performances based on a comparison of box office grosses during Sandy and the equivalent period last year.

For the week ending Sunday Nov. 4, ticket sales were down $6.5 million from the previous week for a gross of $13.6 million.

But even with the storm, one musical was sold out last week -the popular  Book of Mormon.

Other shows with mostly full theaters last week were  Glengarry Glen Ross,  Once,  The Lion King  and Rock of Ages.
