Bette Midler, who consistently drew crowds that brought the gross to over $2 million, returns July 17, closing out the production in a limited engagement through August 25.

Hamilton came out on top with $3,109,924, with usual suspects The Lion King, Springsteen on Broadway, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and Frozen trailing behind in the $2 million range.
