'Hamilton' Tops Broadway Box Office, Brings in $105 Million in 2016

Hamilton not only totally swept the Tony Awards and the pop-culture world but it also swept the Broadway box office!

Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s hit musical topped the box office in 2016, bringing in an incredible $105 million.

In fact, over Thanksgiving, the musical became the first Broadway show to earn more than $3 million in a single eight-performance week.

Hamilton even surpassed Disney’s long-running The Lion King, which brought in $103.2 million and had previously been the biggest earner for the past three years.

The two musicals were followed by Wicked, which brought $89 million, Aladdin, which made $78.2 million and The Book of Mormon, which rounded out the top 5 at $70.6 million.

    Looks like the boycott that Donald Trump supporting deplorables tried was a complete failure. Just like his Presidency is going to be.

    Well they were also stupid enough to think they could boycott Rogue One which ended up being a complete success without them.

    What was their reasoning for boycotting Rogue One?

    There is a hidden message in the plot bashing Donald Trump.
