Darren Criss plays his final week in 'How to Succeed.'

Long-running hits like Wicked, The Lion King and Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark stayed on top as the traditionally slow month of January continued. Fans flocked to the Al Hirschfeld Theatre to catch the final leg of Darren Criss' three week run in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Broadway also said goodbye to the acclaimed, Los Angeles-bound revival of Follies (which earned a healthy $878,880 during its final week), in addition to the limited engagement of The Mountaintop, starring Samuel L. Jackson and Angela Basset, which recently recouped its inital investment.
