Josh Groban’s Departure From Broadway Felt At The Box Office

Question: How much of a marquee star is Josh Groban?

Answer: About half a million dollars a week, based on the Broadway box office numbers logged by “Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812” in its first batch of performances after his departure.

The big financial hit taken by “The Great Comet of 1812” was widely expected, given the number of Grobanites that flocked to the stage door after each performance, not to mention the sizable drop in numbers at the box office in weeks when the star attraction was on temporary vacation. The challenge for “Great Comet” now is to steady the ship with “Hamilton” alum Okieriete Onaodowan stepping into the show later this week. The production should be helped by the fact that Josh Groban’s 7½-month run gave the show a lot of press and publicity. A dozen Tony Award nominations can’t hurt either!
