Broadway grosses

NEW YORK — Broadway grosses rose by a healthy 13.6% during Week 20 (Oct. 6-12), to $13,564,116. Attendance of 198,902 was up 11%.

“Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” started previews with a strong $334,495 for five performances. “Wicked” was similarly powerful in its first frame, with $662,666 for six previews.
