Broadway Grosses

Now I don't know about you but I am getting tired of seeing the same shows in the top ten. Although I really shouldn't complain too much because if people weren't buying tickets then myself and hundreds of other people would probably be out of work. I'm just saying that is time for some new blood. Well until somebody writes a big fat hit then I guess things will stay the same. By the way that means something new and original as opposed to a musical based on a cartoon or movie. Not that there is anything wrong with some of those shows it's just that being a composer myself I have different tastes then most people. Anyway on to the grosses. Here are your top five seven.
