[Broadway Grosses w/e 7/102022] Hello gorgeous.
We said ‘happy trails’ to several shows over the last week: American Buffalo, Macbeth, and Plaza Suite. But we also said ‘hello’ to a few new ones as well: Into the Woods and The Kite Runner.
The top five grossing shows from the week ending in 7/10/22 are the same as the week prior: The Music Man, The Lion King, Hamilton, Wicked, and MJ The Musical.
With the recent news about a certain ‘funny girl’, I wonder what will happen to their grosses over the next couple of days. Stay tuned!
