'Wicked' Banks a Billion >>

This week the musical Wicked achieved a milestone of monumentous proportions for a production on Broadway. It passed the billion dollar mark in box office sales. Previous to this accompliishment,only two other musicals had reached the billion dollar milestone and they are names for the ages, The Lion King and The Phantom of the Opera. As if earning this much money wasn't enough, Wicked earned another distinction by being the fastest production to eclipse the billion dollar mark, achieving that goal in only 13 years and 5000 performances.
