first_img View Comments Leanne Cope & Dimitri Kleioris in ‘An American in Paris'(Photo: Matthew Murphy) An American in Paris will dance its fidgety feet off the Great White Way on October 9, but it’s still got rhythm (and some box office clout). The Gershwin musical grossed $959,422 this past week, marking an over $100,000 boost since the previous week and its best since May. Cats also landed on its feet this past week, re-entering seven figures at $1,011,242. The Tony-winning The Humans is quickly seeing the effects of moving to a bigger house; the show announced its recoupment after earning its highest gross to date with $670,967. Lewis Black played his first performance of Black to the Future on September 12; in one performance, his comedy special grossed $151,181—over 90% of its potential.Here’s a look at who was on top—and who was not—for the week ending September 18:FRONTRUNNERS (By Gross)1.
