Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812 bid farewell to Broadway September 3. The innovative musical saw a surge in its final hurrah, grossing $1,183,228 in its final week of performances. This was its highest gross since the week ending July 2, which marked the conclusion to Josh Groban’s turn as Pierre.
The seven-figure intake earned The Great Comet 110.18 percent of its potential gross for the eight performances, with the average ticket price at a nine-week high ($130.64).
While numbers were up from the previous week for nearly every show, only eight others—a relatively small group—joined Great Comet in surpassing $1 million. Leading the pack were usual suspects Hamilton and Hello, Dolly!, both north of $2 million. Only a couple hundred dollars shy of breaking that barrier was The Lion King.
