Broadway Grosses w/e 10/6/2019: Gray skies are gonna clear up

There was barely a change in grosses last week as the fall season chugged along. With no new shows on the boards, overall grosses ticked up by just 1% to $30,098,714. American Utopia had a strong start with three previews grossing $395,604 at the Hudson Theatre. An average ticket of $142 put it right behind The Lion King as the sixth-highest.
