Broadway Grosses: Beautiful and Twelfth Night/Richard III Make Music at the Box Office

Broadway Grosses: Beautiful and Twelfth Night/Richard III Make Music at the Box Office
Jessie Mueller as Carole King in 'Beautiful: The Carole King Musical'
'Beautiful' opens, 'Twelfth Night/Richard III' packs them in and 'The Lion King' brings home the most bacon.

Beautiful: The Carole King Musical opened on Broadway this week and with it playing at 96.03% capacity we have a feeling that fans will still be loving the show tomorrow. Meanwhile, Mark Rylance’s Twelfth Night/Richard III is doing the bard justice as the only non-musical show to make the list for top capacity, while fan favorites The Lion King, The Book of Mormon, Wicked and Kinky Boots took the lead once again in grosses, joined this week by those revolting Matlidas.
