Broadway Grosses: Cinderella Pulls in Crowds During Early Previews

Broadway Grosses: Cinderella Pulls in Crowds During Early Previews
Santino Fontana & Laura Osnes in 'Cinderella'
'Cinderella' plays to nearly sold out crowds during its first full week of previews.

Many shows saw a slight dip in their numbers this week as The Book of Mormon remained in the top spot. Cinderella is getting off to a fairy tale start as the musical cracked the top five, taking in just under $1 million for its first full week of previews. Jessica Chastain keeps racking up awards for Zero Dark Thirty, and audiences are eager to catch the Oscar nominee live as The Heiress played to a strong 95% capacity. The show also will recoup its initial investment as it enters its final week of performances.
