Broadway Grosses: Aladdin & Les Miz Immediately Fly High on Broadway

Broadway Grosses: Aladdin & Les Miz Immediately Fly High on Broadway
Adam Jacobs in 'Aladdin'
'The Book of Mormon' returned to the top spot.

Aladdin and Les Miz both began previews on Broadway this week and turns out everyone wanted to see a carpet fly and how Ramin Karimloo would do on his Main Stem debut—both shows played to 100% capacity. Meanwhile Rebecca Hall made her final Main Stem bow in Machinal over at the American Airlines Theatre, as did those Bronx Bombers, who have been underdogs since opening on February 6 and have now made way for Audra. And after a few weeks away from the top spot, The Book of Mormon was back as the highest grossing show on the Great White Way.
