'Death of a Salesman' ends its run playing to full houses.

Most shows saw a dip in their receipts during a week where Wicked remained at the top spot. The Tony-nominated revival of Death of a Salesman played its final performance on June 2, breaking the house record at the Barrymore for the eight time during its limited run with $1,066,582 in sales. With the Tony Awards just around the corner, nominated musicals Newsies and Once are drawing in crowds. Newsies played to packed houses at 101.14% capacity, while Once continues to see its numbers climb, taking in a healthy $827,501.
