Broadway Grosses: Mormons and Lions Fight for the Crown; Janis Joplin, The Winslow Boy Join the Party

Broadway Grosses: Mormons and Lions Fight for the Crown; Janis Joplin, The Winslow Boy Join the Party
Mary Bridget Davies in 'A Night with Janis Joplin'
Read on for the Broadway box office grosses for the week ending September 22.

In the eternal battle between Broadway’s biggest blockbusters, the tides can change at any moment! That’s why The Book of Mormon trounced The Lion King at the box office this week, with the two perennial frontrunners in a heated battle with only dollars separating the two. (Last week, Lion won by $6,000, while this week, Mormon conquered by $16,000). Joining the ranks are two Broadway newcomers: The Winslow Boy, starring Roger Rees, and A Night with Janis Joplin. Both shows wiggled their way onto the list this week, but we won’t know their full performing potential until they’ve got a full week of eight shows under their belts. Until then: Rock on, Janis. And Mr. Winslow.
