Road grosses

NEW YORK — Five of the 11 shows pulled in more than $1 million in Week 42 (March 7-13). Overall box office was about even with the previous week, as the return of “9 to 5” to the slate was offset by a two-week break for “In the Heights.” The Costa Mesa, Calif., production of “Wicked” led all shows and set a house record with more than $1.6 million in sales. Gross for the week was $10,727,164.
