Broadway Grosses: Hail to the Chief of Broadway! All the Way Breaks Great White Way Box Office Record

Broadway Grosses: Hail to the Chief of Broadway! All the Way Breaks Great White Way Box Office Record
Bryan Cranston as President Lyndon B. Johnson in 'All The Way'
'All the Way' and 'Mothers and Sons' played their highest grossing weeks.

President Lyndon B. Johnson once said, "A president's hardest task is not to do what is right, but to know what is right." Well, it seems like he knows how to get it right on Broadway. The Tony-winning play All the Way, starring Tony and Emmy winner Bryan Cranston as the 36th President of the United States, broke a Broadway box office record last week. The production grossed $1,425,001, which is more than any other play has grossed in an eight-show week in Broadway history. The show landed in the top five grossing shows, joining perennial favorites The Lion King, Wicked, The Book of Mormon and Kinky Boots. Meanwhile, another new play, Mothers and Sons, took its final bow on June 22, but not before bringing in its highest weekly gross of its run.
