Pretty Woman is poised for a nice spending spree on Rodeo Drive. With a gross of $1,142,989 (83.72 percent of its potential), the musical adaptation of the 1990 comedy broke the Nederlander Theatre box office record for an eight-performance week before officially opening August 16.

Also breaking records in the week ending August 12 was Broadway’s The Boys in the Band, which ended its limited engagement at the Booth Theatre August 11. With eight performances, the Ryan Murphy- and David Stone-produced project made $1,152,649 in its swan song—over 120 percent of its potential—as audiences clamored to catch Matt Bomer, Zachary Quinto, Jim Parsons, and company.

Leading the pack once again was Hamilton, which made over $3 million. Behind it were The Lion King, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Hello, Dolly! and Frozen, which each surpassed $2 million.
