Broadway’s box offices are doing just fine these days, and it’s mainly thanks to two leading men – Hugh Jackman and Bradley Cooper.

Jackman stars in “The River.”

And Cooper is in “The Elephant Man.”

The productions are still in preview performances – but they’ve become some of the hottest tickets in New York.

Hugh Jackman pulled in $917,000 at the Circle in the Square, over eight shows last week. The sellout performances saw the average ticket going for $160.

And Cooper drew $520,000 for just four sold-out shows – where the average ticket came in a bit more – at $163.

The Broadway League’s numbers show last week’s total Broadway box office take from its 35 shows was $27.6 million.

That’s $2 million more than the same week last season – and about $4 million more than last week.
