Road Grosses

NEW YORK — The road dipped another 2.4% ($281,749) in Week 50 (May 5-11), bringing the total gross for the 12-show slate to $11,486,034.

With only six performances this week, “The Lion King” dropped more than $400,000 in its first week in Tampa, Fla., and “Monty Python’s Spamalot” took a $200,000 hit when it left Milwaukee for Appleton, Wis.

The losses were cushioned somewhat by “Wicked” in Los Angeles, which saw a $200,000-plus spike, and “Jersey Boys” in St. Louis, which climbed $100,000 to $1,458,276, making it the frame’s highest-grossing show.

The traveling production of “Wicked” also broke yet another house record in Kansas City.
