NEW YORK — The road stayed level during Week 18 (Sept. 24-30), dipping less than a percentage point. The 13-show slate held steady after last week’s big gains, grossing a total of $13,827,734.

The biggest changes to the slate came from the Dallas production of “The Lion King,” which jumped more than $200,000; and the Houston production of “Mamma Mia!,” up more than $300,000 in its new venue. A six-perf opening week for the Tempe, Ariz., production of “Jersey Boys” equalized those upswings.

For the fifth consecutive week, “Wicked’s” touring company was the highest-grossing show on the slate in Boston with $1,564,776.
