Broadway Grosses w/e 10/21/2018: Fall Plays Open to Big Box Office

Overall grosses inched up this week to $34M. With the majority of shows posting slight increases over last week, some of the biggest signs of strength in the new season are coming from plays.

Opening this week were The Ferryman and The Lifespan of a Fact. Both held their numbers quite well despite likely heavy comping for press and opening nights. American Son, which is still in previews, (insert) has also been showing signs of heat, no doubt due to its star power.
