Which shows broke the Broadway box office this week? Find out!

Daniel CraigRachel Weisz and Rafe Spall aren’t messing around! The trio's revival of Betrayal began performances this week, and if the Broadway community weren’t already aware of the presence of these mega-movie stars, it is now! Motown, Pippin and The Lion King were shockingly knocked out from the top of the capacity charts by the pair of heavy-hitting plays: Betrayal and the newly opened (and newly extended) The Glass Menagerie. Both tickets are two of the fall’s hottest, with Betrayal smashing the Barrymore Theatre’s house record (breaking the record set by Death of a Salesman in June 2012).
