Sucker," and Green Acres. By William Glover AP Drama Writer NEW YORK -- Box-office boom, creative slump. That was Broadway's pattern during the '75-'76 theatrical year now ending. Shows grossed $70 million, topping the $58 million record set in '68-'69. Indicative of waning initiative, almost half of the productions originated abroad, off-Broadway or in regional theaters. There were 27 revivals among the 59 exhibits that reached the Main Stem. Although the jump in revenue could be partly attributed to ticket price increases since the last record went into the books, there was evidence also of growing attendance. . Last year, when prices were just about the same, the gross was $56.2 million -- a take that reversed a five year slide and bettered 73-74 by $10 million. The trade weekly Variety estimated current season attendance at seven million spectators. It was the first year, however, for which such a statistic was kept. The number of dramas, comedies and musicals held steady, but there was a slight increase in the number of total performance weeks. Taking the pulse of the Fabulous Invalid is an annual rite coinciding with the traditional June-May term of all theatrical craft contracts. Nine shows still running are good bets to make profits, and three already closed ended up in the black. In addition, seven holdover hits continue to thrive, and four of seven others that ended long runs during the season made a profit. The biggest winner was the musical A Chorus Line, with nine Tony Awards, the Pulitzer Prize and SRO business. Its main melodic rivals were Chicago and Pacific Overtures, which won the New York Drama Critics Circle citation for best musical. The reviewer group had picked /( Chorus Line last year. The biggest disasters were Home, Sweet Homer and 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Each lost $1.2 million. Six shows folded during tryout stands. And Adela Holzer, the street's lone active woman producer, announced after a couple of flops that she was quitting. Nine new plays by American authors were staged -- one after previous test in England -- but only one. Jules Feiffer's 'cfSKnock Knock, won support from reviewers and fans. Such veteran playwrights as Edward Albee, Arthur Miller, and Tennessee Williams were represented only by earlier successes. The revival trend, attributable to Bicentennial impetus and imports from elsewhere, reflected a growing reluctance by Broadway sponsors to take a chance on untested works as costs continued to spiral. Resident theaters from Connecticut to California, contributed eight shows, three of them moneymakers and another, Treemonisha, winner of an honorary Pulitzer. The New York Drama Critics Circle best American play citation went to David Rabe's Stremers, which began at New Haven's Long Wharf and transferred under the aegis of Manhattan's busiest production center, the New York Shakespeare Festival. That organization also presented A Chorus Line to Broadway after testing in its off-Broadway branch and put on three revivals at Lincoln --Center's Beaumont. Less fortunate was the festival effort to do a season of plays by new authors at Broadway's Booth Theater. The project aborted after one offering. From abroad, France sent one play, Canada a musical and England five assorted events. Though the British contingent was down from last year, Tom Stoppard's Travesties, took the drama Tony as well as the Critics Circle Award for best play, foreign or domestic. Off-Broadway remained generally lethargic, aw exception being the Circle Theater rendition of Knock Knock, which "then moved uptown like A Chorus L ine. Most low-budget experimenters switched to off-off-Broadway showing, with the Manhattan Theater Club and La Mama, as ever, among the busiest. Across the bridge, the Brooklyn Academy of Music again claimed attention with the Royal Shakespeare Company's stunning Henry V. BAM's upstairs tenant, the Chelsea Center, however, ran into season-curtailing financial woes. Two efforts were launched to spruce up the midtown theatrical area. The state attorney general's office started another probe of tick- et-selling'Snd a mayor's committee urged legislation to get rid of hustlers, porn shops, X-rated movies and massage parlors. Getting the 76-77 season off to a fast start, Neil Simon's California Suite, arrives June 10 at the O'Neill and Pal Joey with Eleanor Parker and Edward Vilella is due a week later at the Circle in the Square.
