‘Jersey Boys’ say goodbye to SF

Road Grosses

NEW YORK — The road dipped 4.23% in Week 19 (Oct 1-7), losing about 600,000. The 12-show slate held steady after last week’s big gains, grossing a total of $13,827,734.

Most shows on the slate saw gains — the majority of the dip came with the departure of “The Color Purple” from the slate, as the show prepares to go into production in San Francisco. Meanwhile, “Jersey Boys” has departed that city for Chicago.

The Tempe, Ariz., production of the Four Seasons biotuner broke the nine-perf record this week with an impressive $1,300,683, but, for the sixth consecutive week, “Wicked’s” touring company in Boston was the highest-grossing show on the slate,with $1,572,431.
