On April 2, 1964, a week after Funny Girl opened, the top ticket price for the show was $9.60 for evening performances. The top price for Funny Girl matinees was $5.50.

How to Succeed, Here’s Love and Hello, Dolly! also had a top price of $9.60, but How to Succeed charged that only for the divans in the first six or so rows. I think the 46th Street was the last Broadway theatre that still had divans. Other musicals then running — A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, 110 in the Shade, Foxy and What Makes Sammy Run? — charged $8.80 or $8.60 as the top price. High Spirits and Fade Out—Fade In would soon join the musicals charging $9.60.

It is perhaps also worth mentioning that the mezzanine price was always (or at least almost always) less than the orchestra price. And the last rows of balcony were often $3 or less for musicals.
