An honorary Tony Award and Netflix special later, Bruce Springsteen has bid farewell to Broadway. The rock icon ended his residency at the Walter Kerr Theatre December 15, playing to 100 percent capacity the week ending December 16. Over four performances, it grossed $1,895,695.

Of his 61 weeks on the Great White Way, Springsteen reached full capacity nearly every week—dipping microscopically to 99.8 or 99.9 percent thrice. The average ticket price hovered above $500, allowing the hot ticket to surpass its gross potential consistently.

Those who were unable to catch the often-extended Springsteen on Broadway, which earned him a Special Tony Award earlier this year, can now do so on Netflix.

Also last week, Hamilton led the pack once more with $3,255,649, with The Lion King, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and Wicked trailing behind in the $2 million margin.
