Broadway Grosses: Big Fish Reels In a Huge Audience; The Book of Mormon Reclaims the Crown

Broadway Grosses: Big Fish Reels In a Huge Audience; The Book of Mormon Reclaims the Crown
Norbert Leo Butz in 'Big Fish'
Check out this week's Broadway box office grosses!

For the first time since March, The Book of Mormon rose to the top in both grosses and capacity, besting fellow perennials The Lion King and Wicked to become the highest earner and seat-filler for the week. While we’re on the subject of filling seats, give a big tip of the hat to the brand new musical Big Fish, which began previews on Broadway this week and managed to fill over 100% house capacity with just four preview performances. Norbert Leo Butz, good job reeling in that giant audience!
