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!

Unbelievable!

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!

    … could it be that there are more shows closing than just about EVER before (hence less competition) ? 7 closed on Sunday (granted some of those were holiday limited runs) .. and there are at the very least, another 10 closing in the next 2-3 weeks.

    If you go onto ibdb.com, half of the shows on their home page will be gone by the end on January. Congrats to those three shows for having record breaking weeks.. but my condolences to all those actors who'll be out of work come February.

    People are on Winter break and don't have to return to school yet. Of course, more tickets would be selling.

    I was supposed to go to a broadway show but my flight and trip to New York was cancelled. Thankfully they refunded the tickets to the show which was very kind of them since the tickets do say no refunds on them.
