Broadway Grosses: Tony-Winning Pippin Has Plenty More Box Office-Breaking Magic to Do

Broadway Grosses: Tony-Winning Pippin Has Plenty More Box Office-Breaking Magic to Do
The cast of 'Pippin'
'Wicked' took the lead in box office receipts the week ending November 11.

The Tony-winning revival of Pippin is definitely still doing magic on Broadway. The musical broke the house record at the Music Box Theatre this week, taking in the highest-grossing single performance at $149,158 on November 9. So, what else happened on the Main Stem, you ask? Well, Billy Crystal's Tony-winning one-man show 700 Sundays returned for its limited nine-week engagement, and Il Divo: A Musical Affair along with the Mark Rylance-led stagings of Shakespeare's Richard III and Twelfth Night officially opened on the Great White Way. Meanwhile, as you might have guessed, the Wicked-Mormon-King trifecta remained expectedly triumphant.
