Broadway Grosses: Broadway Sizzles as 11 Shows Top $1 Million at the Box Office
Brandon Victor Dixon & the cast of 'Motown'
'Motown the Musical' and other new shows flexed their muscles at the box office this week.

People always talk about a "Tony bump" at the box office when audiences snap up tickets to shows that caught their fancy during the awards telecast. Well, the bump this year is a biggie, as 11 Broadway shows topped $1 million for the week and two others grossed more than $900,000. Perennial faves The Lion King, Wicked and The Book of Mormon were joined in the million dollar club by Kinky Boots, Motown The Musical (setting a record at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre), Spider-Man, Lucky Guy ($1.36 million, demonstrating the box office clout of Tom Hanks), Matilda, Phantom, Cinderella and Pippin.
