Broadway Grosses: The Book of Mormon Sets Yet Another Record as Five Shows End Their Runs
Rory O'Malley & cast in 'The Book of Mormon'
'The Book of Mormon' continues to smash records at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre.

Another week, another record broken by The Book of Mormon: For the 44th time, the mega-hit musical set a new house record at the 1,068-seat Eugene O'Neill Theatre, earning more than $1.8 million in a week that included New Year's Eve. Three of the four other frontrunners were long-running hits, joined by relative newcomer Annie, in a week that saw nine shows pass the million-dollar mark. Meanwhile, Broadway said farewell to five productions, setting the stage for a slew of new shows: Chaplin, Dead Accounts, Elf, Grace and the Tony-winning War Horse ended their Main Stem engagements.
