To-date gross receipts run up to $ 108 Million. Given its weekly take, it will likely reach $ 150 million by the time the show closes on Jan 1, 2023.

Interestingly, if you have followed social media comments on the show - there have been other reasons why people came to see the show, other than to see Hugh Jackman as Harold Hill.
Many refer to celebratory events ( birthdays/wedding anniversaries/ special occasions/reunion with friends/family trips) or just having played a role in a high school production or in community theatre. It is a beloved show and this revival has added changes to make it a very joyful production. Many tweets refer to being surprised by the element of fun in the show.

The show certainly did not stint on the production values ( such lavish production numbers) with a large cast and a full orchestra. Many, including the kids, showed so much talent and verve and in Jackman's case, his extraordinary joy of performing ( noted by so many).

Then there are those who came back to see it again - because they enjoyed the show or they want to see Hugh Jackman again.
