Road levels out

Road Grosses

NEW YORK — The road leveled out and rose a little in Week 35 (Jan. 21-27), with the 13-show slate up almost 2% to $15,549,504.

“Jersey Boys” added a perf and the attendant $250,000-plus to its gross in Houston, while “The Lion King” posted the next-biggest gain in Mexico City, where it increased its earnings by a little more than $100,000.

The rest of the slate was littered with small gains and losses, and one notable drop on the part of “Mamma Mia!,” which fell about $350,000 moving into its new Connecticut venue.

The highest-grossing show of the week was “The Lion King” in Mexico City, with a whopping $2,727,926.
