The Girl Next Door
'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.
