Aaron Sorkin’s To Kill A Mockingbird has smashed its own box office record, securing its place in the Broadway history books yet again with the highest weekly gross ever for an American play: $1,718,215.
The $1.718M take for the week ending March 31 also is the highest weekly gross of any play in the Shubert Organization’s history. Mockingbird is produced by Scott Rudin, who announced today’s record-breaker.
Mockingbird opened to universal critical praise last December, and has played to sold-out houses at the 1,460-seat Shubert Theatre since previews began Nov. 1. Advance sales currently stand at more than $22 million, with total sales at $52,007,903.
