Bryan Cranston's Play 'All the Way' Breaks Broadway Sales Record


The Tony-winning play starring the 'Breaking Bad' actor grossed over $1.4 million in a week, more than any new straight play in Broadway history.

Hot on the heels of its victorious night at Tony Awards, "All the Way" has scored a new feat. Producers announced on Monday that the Broadway play starring Bryan Cranston broke box office record by grossing $1,425,001 for the week ending June 22.

It is the most money earned by a new straight play on Broadway in a single week. The record was previously held by "Lucky Guy" ($1,412,001), a drama written by Nora Ephron and starring Tom Hanks that ran in 2013.

Hit musical "Wicked" still holds the title for the largest gross ever for any show on Broadway after earning more than $3 million in a week last December.

"All the Way", written by Robert Schenkkan, won Tony Awards for Best Play and Best Actor, the latter was for Cranston's performance as President Lyndon B. Johnson, at the prize-giving event held on June 8. The play depicts the first year of LBJ's administration, during which he tried to pass Civil Rights legislation.

The show will end its limited engagement next week. Steven Spielberg was recently reported planning a TV miniseries based on the play with Cranston expected to reprise his role as LBJ.
