A new production just broke the all-time weekly box office record for any Broadway play in the 118-year history of the Shubert Organization.
Deadline reports that producer Scott Rudin’s “To Kill a Mockingbird” pulled in a record gross of $1,586,946.02 for its first full week of shows following its official opening Dec. 13 at the Shubert Theater.
“With capacity at 100% or greater for every performance, the show now has an advance of more than $22 million. Its capacity during the week just ended was 101.43%,” Deadline reports.
The report adds: “‘Mockingbird’ took eight performances to beat the previous mark held by Harold Pinter revival ‘Betrayal’ (also produced by Rudin), which took in $1,442,087 in nine performances in 2013.”
