Broadway Grosses: Denzel Washington & Idina Menzel Warm Up the Spring

Broadway Grosses: Denzel Washington & Idina Menzel Warm Up the Spring
Idina Menzel as Elizabeth in 'If/Then'
'Wicked' returned to the top spot.

A Raisin In The Sun, starring Denzel Washington, may have only had one preview on Broadway this week, but the show certainly made its presence felt, playing to 100% capacity at the Ethel Barrymore. Newcomer Aladdin, in its second week in previews, continued to play to full houses. Meanwhile Wicked returned to the top spot and its former headliner Idina Menzel was defying gravity in If/Then—with only seven preview performances the production grossed close to the magic million dollar mark.
