With 36 shows playing, the Great White Way took in over $43 million in the week ending November 25—the highest for a Thanksgiving week in recorded history.

In total, 18 shows surpassed the $1 million mark, including new arrivals The Cher Show and To Kill a Mockingbird (which grossed $1,260,036 in seven performances).
