Broadway Grosses: Hamilton Remains Non-Stop

first_img View Comments Phillipa Soo & Lin-Manuel Miranda in ‘Hamilton'(Photo: Joan Marcus) Lin-Manuel Miranda took a bow in his masterpiece Hamilton for one last time on July 9, which also marked the conclusion of Tony winner Leslie Odom Jr. and Philippa Soo’s runs in the blockbuster musical. As audiences—determined not to throw away their shot at catching the three original leads—flocked to the Richard Rodgers Theatre, the show reached its highest gross yet and was the only production this week to surpass its potential. While they will be missed, the tuner will undoubtedly remain a usual suspect on the boards for some time. The Lion King still claimed the throne as the top-grossing show, and perennial hits Wicked, Aladdin and The Book of Mormon joined them in the top spots. Meanwhile, She Loves Me, following a live-streamed performance, ended its limited run with its biggest week at $712,072 and a capacity of 98.51%.Here’s a look at who was on top—and who was not—for the week ending July 10:FRONTRUNNERS (By Gross)1.
