Broadway faced a steady decline in the week ending February 4, with all but two shows down from the week before. Four shows managed to surpass 100 percent of their gross potential, including Dear Evan Hansen in Noah Galvin’s final week of performances. The Real O’Neals star took his final bow February 4, with incoming star Taylor Trensch playing select performances over the past week.
Other shows to reach their complete potential gross were Waitress (with Sara Bareilles and Jason Mraz giving the production a boost during their limited engagements) and usual suspects Hamilton and Springsteen on Broadway.
While the productions faced a near-universal tumble, additional perennial favorites like Wicked, The Book of Mormon, and Come From Away still managed to play to full houses.
