Broadway Grosses: Beautiful Bounces Onto the Broadway Boards

Broadway Grosses: Beautiful Bounces Onto the Broadway Boards
Jessie Mueller as Carole King and Jake Epstein as Gerry Goffin in 'Beautiful - The Carole King Musical'
'Mormon' keeps the faith as the top earner for the week ending November 24.

This week Broadway audiences got a taste of the absurd with the double bill of No Man's Land and Waiting for Godot, starring Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart, which opened on November 24.  In addition to the existential dramas, the Carole King musical Beautiful, starring Tony nominee Jessie Mueller, began Broadway previews this week. The new show joins the baby boomer-friendly A Night with Janis Joplin, Jersey Boys and Motown. The latter show continues to reach out and touch box office gold.
