Road Grosses

NEW YORK — Road receipts increased in Week 44 (March 26-April 1) as the 13-show slate bumped up 8.06% to $12,511,956.

The increase is in part due to the return of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”

“Mamma Mia!” set a house record in Clearwater, Fla., also breaking the $1 million mark — a first for the venue.

Another tuner to set a house record was “Wicked,” in Houston, grossing $1,266,707.

Los Angeles’ “Wicked” was up slightly week to week, and was the highest-grossing show for the week at $1,762,618.
