Road grosses

Road grosses plunged 15.2% to $10,927,750 during Week 5 (June 28-July 4). Independence Day weekend is never kind to the theater biz, and “Riverdance” and “Les Miserables” closed at the end of Week 4, joining the slew of shows that have shuttered for the season.

Next week the road slate will be even smaller, as Toronto’s production of “The Producers” took an early bow July 4, earning C$926,000/$703,204 in its final week.
