Broadway Grosses: Yo, Adrian! Welcome to the Millionaire's Club! Rocky Earns Big at the Box Office
Andy Karl as Rocky Balboa & Terence Archie as Apollo Creed in 'Rocky'
'Rocky,' 'Beautiful' and 'All the Way' grossed over $1 million for the first time.

Broadway loves an underdog! The knockout hit Rocky made its million dollar debut this past week, bringing in $1,022,747. Your family spends Easter weekend at the boxing ring too, right? But the Italian Stallion was not the only one to join the millionaire's club for the first time. Beautiful: The Carole King Musical and All The Way grossed $1,027,244 and $1,067,173, respectively. Meanwhile, Matilda reunited with box office favorites Wicked, The Lion King, Kinky Boots and The Book of Mormon in the top five grossing shows, and Newsies and Mamma Mia! enjoyed a sell-out week for the first and second time this year, respectively.
