The New York city comptroller, William C. Thompson Jr., estimated that the city was losing about $2 million per day because of the strike, in the direct loss of ticket sales and in the spillover effect of fewer dinner checks, hotel bills, rounds of drinks, taxi rides and souvenir purchases. But the League of American Theaters and Producers, which includes production costs and theater maintenance in its figure, says it believes a more accurate estimate is about $17 million per day.
