Road Grosses

NEW YORK — Road grosses continued upward in Week 38 (Feb. 11-17): The 13-show slate picked up an extra 8.4%, rising to $14,743,858.

With the exceptions of minor downturns for “Mamma Mia!,” “High School Musical” and “Avenue Q” (all of which are in new venues this week), every show on the chart saw some growth — a few, like “Wicked” in Los Angeles and “The Phantom of the Opera” in Omaha, Neb., jumped more than $200,000.

The frame may signify the end of the winter doldrums for the road shows; this year has consistently been more profitable than last, and this frame is no exception.

The highest-grossing show on the charts was “Wicked” in Los Angeles, with $1,672,023.
