ABSTRACT
The article reports that Broadway theater touring productions bested the $1 billion mark for the 2007-2008 season. In a season that saw a sub-prime mortgage crisis and the four-dollar gallon of gas, touring productions of the shows "Wicked," "Jersey Boys," "The Phantom of the Opera," "The Lion King," and "Monty Python's Spamalot" all experienced profitable seasons. The road success of these shows came in a year in which there was no new Broadway musical hit.
