Broadway Grosses: New Spring Offerings Plaza Suite, Funny Girl & More Have Box Offices in Full Bloom

April 5th, 2022 | By Lindsey Sullivan

Spring has officially sprung, and it appears Broadway audiences are getting out and about. New offerings are drawing crowds, with The Music Man once again breaking $3 million at the box office and taking the top slot. Blockbusters Hamilton, Wicked, The Lion King and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child placed just ahead of Plaza Suite ($1,383,563), which saw a starry red carpet opening last week for real-life couple Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick‘s Broadway return. Both the Daniel Craig-led Macbeth and Funny Girl, starring Beanie Feldstein, made the top five in terms of audience capacity.
