How popular was the return engagement of "Wicked"?
Over 24 performances, more than 58,600 seats were filled, totaling over $4.7 million, breaking a Murat Theatre record held by, you guessed it, "Wicked," during a previous visit.
The Broadway League, the trade organization for the Broadway industry, estimates that the economic impact of the December visit at $16.5 million, bringing the total of all three visits to over $46 million.
It has yet to be established whether or not seeing such blockbuster shows inspire visitors to attend more locally produced theater.
Next up in the Broadway in Indianapolis lineup: "Ghost: The Musical" in March.
