After winning Tony Awards for Best Actor and Best Play in early June, “All the Way” has seen its ticket sales skyrocket, leading to a record-breaking week for the non-musical Broadway play starring Bryan Cranston as Lyndon B. Johnson.
The production grossed $1,425,001 in eight performances for the week ending on June 22, breaking a Broadway record — that’s the highest grossing week any non-musical Broadway play has ever enjoyed, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Profits had been steady for the political drama since its Broadway debut in March, but since winning two Tonys on June 8, the show has seen unprecedented success. The very next week, “All the Way” grossed an impressive $1,229,459 for the week ending June 15, only to see itself bested by that record-breaking $1,425,001 the following week.
The largest single week haul for any Broadway show, however, still belongs to the ladies of Oz. “Wicked” made over $3 mil in just one week last December.
Written by Pulitzer Prize-winner Robert Schenkkan, ‘All the Way’ recouped its $3.9 million investment back in May and will end its limited engagement this Sunday, June 29, as previously scheduled.
