The cast of Wicked proved themselves once again this week, taking the top slot for overall tickets sold for a Broadway show. Next up on the list? Aladdin, the Disney classic that’s become a mainstay in the weekly top 5 list.
Northeast Public Radio Host Bob Goepfert recently made sense of Wicked’s long-standing popularity, stating Wicked “is one of those Broadway musicals that lives up to its hype.” His review went on to describe Wicked as a “big, flashy show that tells an intriguing and clever story.” It doesn’t hurt that it’s also known for a few hit singles, including Popular and Defying Gravity.
The five-time Tony Award nominated Aladdin has consistently made the top 5 list, largely due to its famous singles, including A Whole New World, and popularity among a wide age range of Broadway musical fans — from kids to grandparents.
The Great Comet came in fifth this week, just holding on to its spot in the top 5 list. The top 10 list was rounded out by The Book of Mormon, Come from Away, Waitress and Sunday in the Park with George.
