Broadway Grosses: Pippin Does Million Dollar Magic; Alan Cumming Takes His Final Bow as Macbeth Closes
The cast of 'Pippin'
'Pippin' joins Broadway's million dollar club in a healthy week at the box office.

The Tony-winning revival of Pippin is definitely doing magic on Broadway. The musical keeps breaking house records at the Music Box Theatre, earning $1,044,078 (a hefty total in one of the smaller Broadway theaters) and climbing to second place in capacity. Family favorite The Lion King continues its Broadway reign, bringing in a whopping $2,070,492 in box office receipts in a narrow victory over Wicked, while The Book of Mormon, Kinky Boots, Motown the Musical and Matilda continue to play to sold-out crowds. Meanwhile, Tony winner Alan Cumming said farewell to Broadway as "the Scottish play" had its final performance on July 14.
