Come From Away, which shows the triumph and strength of community in the wake of tragedy, continues its Broadway run with continuous Standing Room Only crowds and a healthy gross.

Get an in-depth look at this past week's grosses.

In the week ending September 10, the new musical grossed $1,270,214, or 100.73 percent of its potential. It was one of just three shows this past week to surpass its gross potential (due to, in part, Standing Room Only tickets). Joining it were fellow box-office perennials Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen.

Come From Away also led the pack with its capacity, reaching 101.92 percent.
