Road grosses

NEW YORK — Five of the nine shows pulled in more than $1 million in Week 6 (July 4-10). Despite “Hair” moving back to Broadway for the summer and “9 to 5” unable to report box office numbers due to a prior deal with a foreign distributor, ticket sales increased almost 3%. Both productions of “Wicked” set house records, while the Washington, D.C., company led all shows, with more than $1.9 million in sales. Total gross for the week was $10,267,389.
