Square-TA-Logo-grossesSpring is in the air and Broadway loves the breeze. Grosses are up for the week ending March 17, 2013. While long-running standards like Wicked, Lion King and The Book of Mormon continue to dominated the Broadway box office, audiences came in droves to see the new musical Motown. Only in its first week of previews, and the show is already a happy member of the millionaire club. Motown grossed $1,029,883 and played to 103% capacity! Lucky Guy, the show that boasts the Broadway debut of Tom Hanks, had another solid week, as well. It, again, grossed more than $1 million and played to full houses.

Hands on a Hardbody, unfortunately, still suffers. The show grossed only $196,151 and played to only 68.72% capacity. Only Cat on a Hot Tin Roof played to a more disappointing house. Cat… played to a capacity of 65.56%.

  1. [...] Sales, unfortunately,  have been abismal (avg. 23% of gross potential) and without strong reviews, we wonder just how long the show can last. [...]
