'All My Sons' generated potent grosses last week

NEW YORK — Is Katie Holmes helping "All My Sons" pull in potent grosses on Broadway?

Last week, the Arthur Miller drama was the highest-grossing play on Broadway, with $684,002 for its first full week of eight preview performances at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre. It played to nearly 98 percent capacity at the 1,052-seat theater.

The revival — starring John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest, Patrick Wilson and Holmes — opens officially on Oct. 16. It has a top ticket price of $116.50 with premium tickets topping out at $300 for certain performances.

Hit musicals, of course, usually gross much more. "Wicked," for example, took in more than $1.3 million last week at the 1,809-seat Gershwin Theatre.
