As students head back to school and 11th-hour vacations wind down, Broadway encountered a minor box-office slump in the week ending September 8, with virtually every show facing a dip from the week below. Still, two shows managed to surpass the $2 million mark: usual suspect Hamilton ($2,911,182) and new arrival Moulin Rouge! ($2,095,697).

Both shows were above 100 percent capacity and gross potential, as were To Kill a Mockingbird, Hadestown, and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

The week saw the arrival of The Great Society and Derren Brown: Secret, both playing to about 80 percent capacity.
