Sheesh, Ridger. Just sheesh

The wording crossed me up: In 2013 this musical based on a movie became the first show to gross $1 billion on Broadway.

I got focused on 2013 as the year it opened. Which of course is totally wrong, and the notion that some play - any play, no matter how brilliant - could gross a billion in one year is ludicrous. 2013 was the year it hit that mark, after running for many years - sixteen when it set the record and it's still running.

It's The Lion King, of course.

Don't feel bad: I guessed "Wicked."
