Broadway Grosses: Annie Gains Momentum as Holidays Approach

Broadway Grosses: Annie Gains Momentum as Holidays Approach
Lilla Crawford & Sunny in 'Annie
'Annie' has its best week yet.

As the holiday season approaches, families are filing into the Palace Theatre where Annie had its best week since the revival began performances, taking in $883,946. Meanwhile things were going great for Broadway's reigning family show as The Lion King celebrated a significant milestone: its 15th anniversary! In non-family friendly show news, the porn comedy The Performers officially opened...and then closed after just six performances. Broadway also welcomed two-time Tony winner Patti LuPone back to the boards as The Anarchist began previews.
