Broadway Bounces Back After Snow Storm

Square-TA-Logo-grossesAfter last week’s low grosses due to Winter Storm Nemo, Broadway recovered with high numbers for the week ending February 17. Wicked came out on top after several weeks of trailing Book of Mormon. And seven shows entered the millionaire club, up from last week’s four.  Amongst those in the millionaire club was Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella. The show hasn’t officially opened, but has been enjoying healthy numbers in previews. Inching its way up in the ranks, Cinderella falls just outside the top five, grossing $1, 056,544. Mary Poppins also enjoyed million dollar grosses as its March 3 closing date nears. The production grossed $1,015,709 and played to 85.07% capacity.
