Broadway Grosses: Wicked Takes In Over $2.5 Million During Holiday Week

Broadway Grosses: Wicked Takes In Over $2.5 Million During Holiday Week
Willemijn Verkaik in 'Wicked'
'Wicked' remained the box office champ over the Easter holiday.

Broadway definitely had a happy Easter as 19 shows played to houses of 90% capacity and more. Long-running, family-friendly hits Wicked and The Lion King both passed the $2 million mark. And while Broadway said farewell to Scarlett Johansson as Cat on a Hot Tin Roof played its final performance, plenty of new stars are now calling Broadway home: The Alec Baldwin-led Orphans began its run, as did Fiona Shaw's solo show The Testament of Mary and The Trip to Bountiful (starring Cicely Tyson, Vanessa Williams and Cuba Gooding Jr.)
