The former frontman of The Smiths played the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre May 2–11.
British singer-songwriter Morrissey took the stage at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre for seven performances May 2–11 as the inaugural act of the In Residence on Broadway series at the venue this summer. The Smiths frontman grossed a total of $1,881,374—92.32 percent of its potential—playing to an audience at 96.4 percent capacity.
Coming out above Morrisseywere two usual suspects: The Lion King and Hamilton, the only two shows to gross above $2 million in the week ending May 12 (the latter hitting $3,139,022).
Three of this year’s Tony-nominated musicals also reached seven figures this past week: Ain’t Too Proud—The Life and Times of the Temptations ($1,494,459), Tootsie ($1,409,488), and Hadestown ($1,097,115).
