Bright lights, New York City

The lights are getting brighter on Broadway.

In addition to the annual numbers reported earlier in this space, the week that ended on Jan. 1 resulted in the highest gross receipts of any week since anybody started counting back in the early 1990s. Theaters played to 93.9 percent capacity, and took in $25.2 million. Big winners again were the musicals Spamalot, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Light in the Piazza and the play Doubt.
