B.O. even; ‘Civil War’ 743g

Road Grosses

NEW YORK — The road held almost absolutely steady during Week 43 (March 19-25), as receipts totaled $15,700,753, a decline of a minuscule .2%. The number of shows reporting held even at 25.

“Dame Edna” lost some altitude as it ended a popular Boston run and moved to Detroit, where it took $237,950 of a potential $459,050.

“The Civil War” gained ground as it moved to St. Louis, nabbing $743,815.

Numbers continued to get big boosts from the productions of “The Lion King” and “Mamma Mia!” now playing in both Los Angeles and Toronto.

Reading the Road Grosses

(E) means figures were not available and were estimated based on performances in recent weeks. As with Broadway box office reports, the quoted figures for touring and local non-New York productions represent net amount, that is, after deduction of subscription discounts and theater party, credit, computer and other sales commissions.
