The Boss made his Broadway debut this week – and shattered multiple industry records in the process.

With just five performances of his concert show Springsteen On Broadway, he grossed a staggering $2.33 million, behind only Hamilton and Hello, Dolly! – which were playing full 8-performance schedules.
