Broadway Grosses: Did Romeo and Juliet Have a Star-Crossed Box Office Debut?

Broadway Grosses: Did Romeo and Juliet Have a Star-Crossed Box Office Debut?
Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad in Romeo and Juliet
Check out this week's Broadway box office grosses for the week ending August 25!

With just a few more weeks of summer left, Broadway audiences are flooding the houses to get their final vacation fix of musical theater goodness. Perennial frontrunners The Lion King, Wicked and The Book of Mormon topped the list this week, though no show managed to eke past the coveted $2 million mark (which they’ve recently seemed to surpass with no trouble). New on the boards this week was the Orlando Bloom-and Condola Rashad-led revival of Romeo and Juliet, which should pick up steam next week after a full week of performances. Don’t be surprised to see this Shakespearean tragedy shucking off any traces of plague on its house—the Richard Rodgers Theatre!
