How much are Broadway actors paid?

How much are Broadway actors paid? 

As the USA Today article The curtain hides actors' salaries sums up nicely, good luck finding out this information. After poking around cyberspace, all I can surmise is that salaries start at the the Actors Equity minimum of $1,653 and is negotiable from there. A New York Magazine article from a few years ago cites 2-4X the minimum for ensemble and 5-10X the minimum for lead. 

At the end of the day, the more famous and male the actor is the more he gets paid.

Some Random Numbers

So, here are a few numbers. Where possible, I've linked the underlying source article from New York Magazine, New York Times New York Post or Bloomberg
