In a seven-show week, the play reached 99.14% capacity. As word of mouth continues to spread about the Olivier-winning production, it is expected that Broadway audiences will continue to fill seats at these high numbers. On a lighter note, the revival of You Can’t Take It With You opened with a bang to reviews as sweet as candy and we expect to shortly see an uptick in the production’s grosses.
