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.

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

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.
