The new boys in town have proven themselves to be popular on the boards. The Broadway production of The Boys in the Band grossed $1,035,583—108.21 percent of its potential—over eight performances in the week ending May 20.

The boost follows a seven-show week the week prior, the result of an on-stage injury sustained by Jim Parsons, who has since returned to the show. The all-star cast also features Zachary Quinto, Matt Bomer, Andrew Rannells, Tuc Watkins, and Robin De Jesús.

Meanwhile, usual suspects took the top slots, with Hamilton, The Lion King, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Springsteen on Broadway and Wicked leading the pack as the highest-grossing shows of the week.

Also riding a marginal wave was SpongeBob SquarePants, which, at $730,325, played its highest-grossing week since April 8. The musical earned 12 Tony Award nominations May 1, and further recognition on Broadway’s biggest night could help deliver a continued high tide.
