Wicked Takes Hold as Top Musical on Broadway

Adam Young | March 7, 2017
Wicked holds top spot.
Wicked solidified its position as the top musical on Broadway by taking the number one sales spot for the third consecutive week. It’s held the top spot for almost all of 2017 and at this point shows no signs of slowing. The two Disney musicals, Aladdin and The Lion King, came in second and third, followed by Hamilton and The Book of Mormon.

Just outside the top five but still having strong weeks were Miss Saigon and Come From Away. Miss Saigon is produced by Cameron Mackintosh, starring Jon Jon Briones, Eva Noblezada, Alistair Brammer and Rachelle Ann Go. Brought over from London—where it earned positive reviews—Miss Saigon will debut at The Broadway Theatre on March 23.

Playing at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, Come From Away tells the story of air travelers stranded in Newfoundland on September 11, 2001. When air traffic controllers grounded all flights over the United States, passengers on inbound flights from Europe were diverted to the tiny airport at Gander on the northeast coast. Come From Away details the way locals opened their homes for complete strangers during a time of pain and uncertainty at home and abroad.
