‘Chicago,’ ‘Wicked’ pump up biz

Road Grosses

NEW YORK — Road receipts increased in Week 49 (April 30-May 6) as the 13-show slate jumped 11.24% to $11,946,344.

The increase was due in part to the return of “Chicago” in Vancouver.

Dallas’ “Wicked” was the highest-grossing show for the week, at $1,632,073, while the Los Angeles run of “Wicked” drew $1,566,240 — the second-highest gross for the week.
