Road grosses

NEW YORK — The road grosses held steady during Week 18 (Sept. 30-Oct. 6). The total of $12,003,366 for the 16 shows reporting was up by just 1.3% over the previous week.

“42nd Street,” which was caught up in a dispute between a ticket-takers union and theater management at the Mechanic in Baltimore, nevertheless managed to gross a healthy $745,970. The dispute, which at one pointed threatened to cause cancellation of all weekend perfs, was resolved during the show’s Balto stand.

“The Producers” moved on to Cleveland, and continued to gross north of $1 million.
