Broadway Grosses: As Curtain Goes Down for After Midnight & All the Way, Box Office Numbers Go Up

Broadway Grosses: As Curtain Goes Down for After Midnight & All the Way, Box Office Numbers Go Up
Rosena M. Hill Jackson, Bryonha Marie Parham, and Carmen Ruby Floyd in 'After Midnight'
'All the Way' beat its own box office record from last week.

This week, Broadway bid farewell to After Midnight and All the Way, which both played their final performances on June 29. After Midnight, which announced its closing earlier in June, kept audiences tapping and cheering until the very end and celebrated a box office bump in its last week. The tuner took in its highest gross of 2014 ($767,964), and played to its highest capacity in its run, which began in October 2013. The Bryan Cranston-led All the Way surpassed its own record from last week by grossing $1,623,495, more than any other play has grossed in an eight-show week in Broadway history. Also taking its final bow last week was Casa Valentina. Meanwhile, Wicked reclaimed its title as top grossing show over The Lion King, with The Book of Mormon, All the Way and Aladdin joining them in the top five.
