Wow! We wonder what set this off!
Last week, three different Broadway musicals reportedly broke their respective theater's records for highest weekly gross, totaling all together a massive $34,997,571!
Wicked, which plays at the Gershwin Theatre, grossed $2,153,110, beating its prior record for the week of November 28th, 2010 and making it the record holder for largest weekly gross in Broadway history!
Meanwhile, The Lion King pulled in $1,993,370 at the Minskoff Theatre, which beat its prior record - also the week of November 28th, 2010.
Lastly, The Phantom of the Opera, which plays at the Majestic Theatre, grossed $1,390,530.53 - its highest weekly gross in 23 years!
We imagine a lot of it has to do with the holiday weekend, but we're also thrilled that so many are still interested in going to the theater!
Congratulations, guys! We hope that the money continues to come in!
