Broadway Grosses w/e 4/21/2019: Broadway Shows are Bloomin’

As tourists flocked to Broadway on their holidays and Spring breaks, theatres filled to the tune of $40M last week. Broadway mainstays, The Lion King, Wicked, Aladdin, and Frozen each added a 9th performance to capitalize on the tourist traffic.

The leaders of the pack for the season are To Kill A Mocking Bird, which broke another house record by pulling in $1.72M, and Ain’t Too Proud, which grossed nearly $1.4M. Most shows out of previews posted significant gains last week.

With the Tony Awards cut-off date set as April 25th, there are only a few more openings to mark the season. Expect to see bumps coming to those shows getting the most nominations next week.
