Road grosses

NEW YORK — Road grosses dipped 1.9% to $13,387,792 during Week 1 (May 31-June 6), the first week of the 2004-05 season.

The decrease can be attributed primarily to two shows: “The Lion King’s” Gazelle company (as opposed to the Cheetah company, currently stationed in San Francisco) played only five perfs at the Ohio Theater in Columbus, earning $714,713, less than half its take of $1,450,870 in Detroit the previous week. And “Mamma Mia!” rang up $645,026 in Scranton, Penn., a week after earning $1,000,236 in Baltimore.
