Broadway Grosses: One Man, Two Guvnors Breaks Box Office Record
James Corden in 'One Man, Two Guvnors'
'One Man, Two Guvnors' breaks the house record at the Music Box Theatre.

As the acclaimed run of One Man, Two Guvnors winds down, the comedy managed to break the house record at the Music Box Theatre for a fourth time by pulling in $746,407 during its penultimate week. Broadway bid farewell to Tony-nominated musical Sister Act this week, however the fall season reared its head as new musical Chaplin began previews.
