With seven preview performances this past week, Finding Neverland broke the seven-figure mark and played to over 100% capacity. The tuner joined The Book of Mormon, The Audience, Fish in the Dark and Matilda in the top five shows by capacity. It’s one of eight shows currently in previews, with several more (including—as of tonight—Something Rotten) in the wings. Another tuner opening soon, the Lincoln Center revival of The King and I, played its first full week of performances to a house just shy of 100%. We suspect that it will hit that milestone within the next few weeks (opening night is set for April 16). *Number based on eight preview performances ** Number based on seven preview performances *** Number based on six regular performances ****Number based on four preview performances *****Number based on three preview performances and five regular performances ******Number based on seven regular performances Source: The Broadway League FRONTRUNNERS (By Gross) 1. The Lion King ($1,901,829) 2.
