The Book of Mormon secures the top spot for the forth week in a row, grossing more than $1.6 million, with The Lion King and Wicked trailing, but not by much. Jersey Boys and Once inched their way into the Millionaire Club, improving on last week’s grosses and making the number a lucky seven, which included the always steady Spider-man and Evita.

An Enemy of the People opened September 27, the first play of the fall season. This week the production lands at the bottom of the list, with a total gross of only $165,381. Also, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf began preview performances. The show took in $190,160 in its first week.
