Broadway had big year, up from last.

Broadway shows grossed approximately $1.037 billion during the 2010 calendar year, according to statistics released by The Broadway League Jan. 4. Grosses are up from 2009, which brought in $1.004 billion at the box office. Attendance was also up for the year that just ended: 12.11 million in attendance in 2010 versus 11.88 million in 2009.

Now, if only "Spider-Man" can get its super-priced, injury-prone act together.
