NEW YORK — Five of the 11 shows pulled in more than $1 million in Week 43 (March 14-20). Overall box office was up less than 1%, with some tours reaping the benefits of larger houses (“Les Miserables”) and others paying the costs of smaller venues (“West Side Story”). The Costa Mesa, Calif., production of “Wicked” again led all shows and broke its own house record with nearly $1.7 million in sales. The gross for the week was $10,757,493.
