After a Labor Day swell, most Broadway shows brace for a dip at the box office. Still, some shows have seen a modest uptick in the weeks since summer vacations have come to an end, including Dear Evan Hansen and Mean Girls.

Both high school-centric musicals have been among the frontrunners in the grosses. The former, the 2017 Tony winner for Best Musical, grossed $1,515,204—112.05 percent of its potential—in the week ending October 14, increasing every week for the past month. Meanwhile, Mean Girls, which opened earlier this spring, saw its highest gross since Labor Day weekend with $1,386,134 (also above 100 percent of its potential).

Leading the pack were five usual suspects: Hamilton, The Lion King, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Springsteen on Broadway, and Wicked, which celebrates its 15th anniversary on Broadway later this month.
