    'Grease' slick on Broadway

    Tuner 'Grey Gardens' closed on top after its successful Broadway run.

    By Gordon Cox

    One show said hello to Broadway last week while three tuners said goodbye -- and summer sales heated up all along the Rialto.

    "Grease" ($882,396) was the word at the Brook Atkinson Theater, where the new revival of the popular musical, starring the two winning entrants of reality TV casting skein "Grease: You're the One That I Want," began previews July 24. The show made the top 10 its first time at bat and played to more than 99% capacity.

    Meanwhile, three musicals closed Sunday, which brought in big bucks for two of them.

    "Grey Gardens" ($677,169) was up more than $140,000, breaking the house record at the Walter Kerr (historically a play house). And "Beauty and the Beast" ($1,041,283) was in the millionaires' club yet again, with the weekly gross down from the prior sesh thanks to comps for closing festivities.

    Both "Gardens" and "Beauty" played to essentially full houses. However, another show that closed Sunday, the Roundabout revival of "110 in the Shade" ($361,160), wasn't quite as hot, drawing 90% capacity crowds.

    Overall Broadway biz climbed, with most shows up from the previous sesh and total sales boosted $1.1 million to $19.8 million. Including "Beauty" here were five millionaire productions this week, with "Legally Blonde" ($1,006,075) joining "Wicked" ($1,480,955), "The Lion King" ($1,311,914), "Mary Poppins" ($1,233,429) and "Jersey Boys" ($1,212,550).
