Broadway Grosses: A Time to Kill Packs the Courtroom for Its Opening Arguments

Broadway Grosses: A Time to Kill Packs the Courtroom for Its Opening Arguments
The cast of 'A Time to Kill'
Check out the Broadway box office grosses for the week ending September 29.

OK, so it’s a theater and not a courtroom, but that didn’t stop A Time to Kill from filling the seats for its very first preview performance this week. Earning just under $55,000 for its first performance, the stage adaptation of John Grisham’s legal thriller sailed its way to the capacity big leagues. The jury's still out on how hot this ticket will be, but if the verdict comes back with strong buzz for the show, then chalk up a win for stars Sebastian Arcelus, Patrick Page, Tom Skerritt and the whole cast.
