Disney’s stage adaptation of Frozen set a new house record at Broadway’s St. James Theatre, grossing a total of $2,246,998 for the week ending April 1 (Easter Sunday).
The show surpassed The Producers’ 14-year record of a $1,600,243 gross over eight performances. (The 2007 holiday engagement of How the Grinch Stole Christmas! also surpassed this figure, though over 15 performances in a single week).
In all, 19 shows reached seven figures, including Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which grossed $1,589,033 (114.28 percent of its potential) over six performances, and Broadway’s longest-running production: The Phantom of the Opera, which played its highest-grossing week of the year with $1,605,070 (surpassing its potential by 18.33 percent).
