Hamilton once again led the pack north of $3 million, with The Lion King, Hello, Dolly! (even with Midler out for two performances—one previously scheduled), and Wicked trailing behind.

And while not quite reaching the ranks of the frontrunners, A Doll’s House, Part 2 celebrated a sizable uptick for the second consecutive week. As Tony winner Laurie Metcalf and Tony nominees Condola Rashad and Chris Cooper played their final set of performances, the Lucas Hnath comedy grossed $646,910 and saw its house at 99.2 percent capacity—the closest it’s been to reaching Standing Room Only.
