The Super Bowl may have brought thousands of tourists to the city, but it left Broadway feeling like the Denver Broncos.

Numbers show Broadway shows did not benefit from the estimated 100,000 people who visited for Super Bowl XLVIII.

The Broadway League reports ticket buyers fell by more than 15,000 during last week, and grosses were down by nearly $2.5 million from the week before.
