Hits new sales high of $50.3 million for week, as individual productions also break records
It was a week of breaking records on Broadway.
Several shows, from “Hamilton” to two-decade-old hits such as “The Lion King” and “Chicago,” reported all-time sales highs for the seven-day period that ended Sunday, according to the Broadway League, the trade group that tracks the industry. Broadway itself also set a new weekly sales high of $50.3 million, beating the previous record of $49.7 million, set about a year ago.
