Bruce Springsteen is back on Broadway after a month away, and all is well again.
Bruce played four shows last week and made $1.9 million. A fifth show would have restored him to his $2.4 million weekly gross.
Welcome back, Bruce! Now we get into the interesting part of how the awards groups will honor Bruce. Best Musical? Special designation?
Meantime, “Hello, Dolly!” fell back below $1 million to around $854,622. The good reviews from the week before kicked their box office up a notch last week over a mil. But it’s all back to this low number. Bernadette Peters and Victor Garber are putting on a Tony Award- worthy show– a little more than the original production.
EXCLUSIVE: “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” is set to win the Tony Award for BestPlay. Why? Turns out Martin McDonagh’s much praised “The Hangmen” WILL NOT move to Broadway until the fall. Star Johnny Flynn wants to be in the UK with his wife for the birth of their child. Isn’t that silly? He could see the birth on Face Time! Well, seriously, that’s the situation. So no “Hangmen” this season. “Harry Potter” has a clear shot at the prize in a slow year for new plays.
