Road Grosses

Road grosses increased in Week 41 (March 6-12), as the 12-show slate gained 5.56% to total $10,870,130.

Although “Peter Pan” was on hiatus, “Monty Python’s Spamalot” joined the slate. Grossing a strong $1,010,460 in Boston, it was the third highest-grossing show of the week, just behind the two “Wicked” tours.

After “The Lion King’s” second company had a good run in East Lansing, Mich., the show moved to Rochester, N.Y., for a strong, six-performance first week, with $788,015.
