Broadway Grosses: Les Miserables Brings It Home at the Box Office

Broadway Grosses: Les Miserables Brings It Home at the Box Office
the cast of 'Les Miserables'
There's a new master of the house: 'Les Miz' earns a spot in the top 5 grossing shows.

The Great White Way is all about hearing the people sing! The Broadway return of Les Miserables officially opened at the Imperial Theatre on March 23 and has made its presence known by breaking into the top five grossing shows. Meanwhile, perennial box office favorites Wicked, The Lion King, The Book of Mormon and Kinky Boots kept their positions in the other top four places. What else is on the horizon? Look out for Hedwig: audiences love Neil Patrick Harris and the rock goddess played her first preview performance on March 29 to over 100% capacity.
