Broadway Grosses: Aladdin and Wicked Fly High at the Box Office

Broadway Grosses: Aladdin and Wicked Fly High at the Box Office
James Monroe Iglehart as Genie in 'Aladdin'
The genie and the witch are doing great at the box office.

Whether on a magic carpet or a broomstick, it's a good week to be flying on Broadway. Aladdin, in its third week of previews, continued to bring in packed houses, while Wicked kept its spot as the top grossing show. Additionally, the revolting children of Matilda found their way back into the top five, and A Raisin in the Sun and The Book of Mormon once again played to houses of 100% or higher capacity.
