As several productions prepare to open on Broadway, two long-running, Tony-winning Best Musicals played their final performances April 7: Kinky Boots and The Band's Visit, which took in $1,009,005 and $756,099, respectively, at the box office in their final week.

Kinky Boots, which opened at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre in April 2013, surpassed seven figures in its final two weeks. The Band's Visit, last year's Best Musical Tony winner, reached its highest gross of the year (95 percent of its potential) during its swan song week.
