NEW YORK — Road grosses improved slightly during Week 12 (Aug. 11-17), as the road shows were largely unimpaired by the widespread blackout.

“Mamma Mia!’s” move from Toronto to Vancouver proved fortunate. Only one show, “The Lion King,” was left in that balckout-affected region.

“The Graduate” started its tour with strong numbers in San Francisco. It grossed $506,118 of a potential $563,105 at the Curran.
