Broadway Grosses

That's right theatre fans. It's time. Time for what you say? Why it's time to take a look at last week's grosses of course. Now of course there were the usual shows like Wicked and The Lion King who grossed over a million dollars. No shock there as they have been doing that since they opened. There was however a new member of the million dollar club.

American Idiot. Now before you start to think that the rest of the world all of a sudden woke up one and day and decided they all had to run out and see American Idiot in the same week they didn't. The real reason the show had a 40% increase from the week before is because Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong joined the cast for the week.

I bet the producers of Million Dollar Quartet wished Johnny Cash or Elvis was still alive to boost their sales. Other shows to post high numbers last week were Jersey Boys, Billy Elliot and Promises,Promises. Later this week will bring the debut of one of this season's most highly anticipated new shows Driving Miss Daisy starring Vanessa Redgrave and James Earl Jones. Look for that show to be a big seller at the box office. Now onto the rest of last week's grosses. Enjoy.
