Road grosses

NEW YORK — Road grosses rose during Week 21 (Oct. 14-20). The total B.O. for the 18 shows reporting was $13,053,929, a rise of 4.6% over the prior frame.

“Man of La Mancha” opened its pre-Broadway tryout in Washington, and managed to gross a more than respectable $575,800 of a potential $901,780, despite the anxiety gripping the region in relation to the sniper spree.
