Broadway Grosses: Crowds Check in for Plaza Suite‘s Final Weeks

June 14th, 2022 | By Lindsey Sullivan

This play’s the thing! Though musicals are the main dish for Broadway box offices, Neil Simon’s Plaza Suite, led by real-life married couple Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, has been a top-five regular, right next to tuners The Music Man, Hamilton, The Lion King and Wicked. In fact, the production has already extended its run twice at the Hudson Theatre, where it set a record this week at $1,708,387. It’s the staging’s fourth time to set a new box office record for its Broadway venue. With closing scheduled for July 10, audiences appear to be making the most of its final weeks.
