For the week ending June 11, which coincided with the 2017 Tony Awards ceremony at Radio City Music Hall, the Bette Midler-led Hello, Dolly! brought in $2,022,026 at the box office. The critically acclaimed production—just named the season's Best Revival of a Musical Tony winner—last passed the $2 million mark in the week ending April 30.

Other productions surpassing the $2 million mark include the Lin-Manuel Miranda hit Hamilton ($2,741,983) and the long-running The Lion King ($2,096,787), with Wicked just a hair behind ($1,929,353).
