British singer-songwriter Morrissey took the stage at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre for seven performances May 2–11 as the inaugural act of the In Residence on Broadway series at the venue this summer. The Smiths frontman grossed a total of $1,881,374—92.32 percent of its potential—playing to an audience at 96.4 percent capacity.
The series will next host Yanni, followed by Mel Brooks, Regina Spektor, Criss Angel, and the Beatles tribute Rain.
Coming out above Morrissey were two usual suspects: The Lion King and Hamilton, the only two shows to gross above $2 million in the week ending May 12 (the latter hitting $3,139,022).
Three of this year’s Tony-nominated musicals also reached seven figures this past week: Ain’t Too Proud—The Life and Times of the Temptations ($1,494,459), Tootsie ($1,409,488), and Hadestown ($1,097,115).
