Broadway Grosses: Wicked Continues to Defy Gravity


first_img View Comments Christmas week on Broadway and the majority of productions played seven performances; two that did the full eight shows topped the frontrunners by gross—Hamilton, once again breaking the $3 million mark and Wicked, which continues to be popular after thirteen years on the Main Stem. On the other end of the spectrum, On Your Feet! had a particularly difficult week, bringing in the fifth least of any show on Broadway by gross and ending up the lowest by capacity. Next week is traditionally one of the strongest at the Great White Way’s box office so the Gloria Estefan bio-musical will be hoping for a significant uptick then.Here’s a look at who was on top—and who was not—for the week ending December 25:FRONTRUNNERS (By Gross)1.
