Broadway Grosses: The Glass Menagerie Sparkles in Last Week on Broadway

Broadway Grosses: The Glass Menagerie Sparkles in Last Week on Broadway
Cherry Jones & Celia Keenan-Bolger in 'The Glass Menagerie'
'Wicked' took the top spot once more.

Midwinter recess for schools in New York State helped those magical maggots over at Matilda to worm their way back into the top five grossing shows on the Great White Way this week. Wicked once again defied gravity in the top spot and The Lion King followed close behind. Meanwhile over at the Booth Theatre The Glass Menagerie made its final Broadway bow with a strong showing capacity wise and Bronx Bombers, which has been an underdog since it opened on February 6, announced it would be departing the Main Stem.
