You're the Top: Broadway Superlatives


Records are set on Broadway: Biggest, most, best, longest, shortest. They're "tops" in their class.

A look at the "record setters," that is, Broadway musicals through the years that set records in one way or another. Some records are for highest grossing musicals, or longest time to sit on your seats to watch the show, or the biggest financial losers, or the longest running shows ever. My two favs are for "highest ticket price" sold at the box office ($998), and the highest average ticket price ($506) for a Broadway show – this is a real surprise.

You'll probably know some of the records they've set but I guarantee you'll be surprised and stunned by others.

Enjoy the show!
