Broadway Grosses: Kinky Boots Fans 'Say Yeah!' at the Box Office, Break Record

Broadway Grosses: Kinky Boots Fans 'Say Yeah!' at the Box Office, Break Record
The cast of ' Kinky Boots'
'Wicked' took the lead in box office receipts the week ending December 1.

The Tony-winning production of Kinky Boots is not your father’s musical! This past week it grossed $1,912,568 breaking the all-time house record at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre. Despite a somewhat controversial appearance in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Broadway fans kept calm and got kinky, making a splash for Harvey and Cyndi at the box office. How did everyone else fare during the Thanksgiving holiday? Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark pulled in a full house, notwithstanding its recently announced closing, and family friendly The Lion King raked in the dough as it set the record for fourth longest-running show in Broadway history.
