Broadway Grosses: Twelfth Night Breaks Records, Beautiful Packs the House & Bridges Joins the Boards
Mark Rylance
'The Bridges of Madison County' moved onto the Broadway scene this week!

Audiences are still clamoring to catch Mark Rylance pull double-duty as the neurotic, lovestruck Countess Olivia in William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, and then as the murderous titular madman of The Bard's Richard III. The shows, performed in repertory, broke the house record of Broadway’s Belasco Theatre for the fourth time. Meanwhile, Beautiful, starring Tony nominee Jessie Mueller, packed in huge crowds this week, playing to over 97 percent capacity at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre, and The Bridges of Madison County, starring four-time Tony nominee Kelli O'Hara and Steven Pasquale, began Broadway previews.
