Broadway had plenty to celebrate between Christmas and New Year's as 18 shows crossed the million dollar mark, with many playing an additional ninth performance to accommodate the holiday crowds. Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark broke the record for highest single-week gross of any show in Broadway history, taking in nearly $3 million. The former record holder, Wicked, also had a fantastic week with $2.7 million in ticket sales. Hugh Jackman and Daniel Radcliffe bid farewell to Broadway on high notes with Jackman's solo show earning more than $2 million in its final week and Radcliffe (who played his final performance in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying) not far behind with a record-breaking $1.9 million. Broadway also said goodbye to Bonnie & Clyde, Private Lives and The Addams Family.
