Broadway Grosses w/e 12/30/2018: A Smashing (New) Year!

As predicted, last year’s records were used to fuel Time Square’s confetti cannons, as each one was blown to smithereens! From Disney to British plays to American Plays, box office records were smashed and shouted from the rooftops.  All this totaled to an astonishing $57M week, which was a 15% increase over the week last year.

Among the notable records was Hamilton, crossing the $4M mark and Harry Potter grossing $2.5M, the highest for any play in Broadway history.  Life after The Boss is OK after all….
