The new Broadway drama "A Steady Rain," starring Hollywood stars Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig, has set the record for the highest weekly ticket sales of a non-musical play, its producers said on Tuesday.

The play about two Chicago policeman earned just under $1.17 million at theater box offices in the week ending Sept. 20 while the drama was still in previews.
 
It beat the previous record of $1.06 million set by comedian Billy Crystal’s "700 Sundays" in May 2005.
