  • Record Sales for ‘Betrayal’

    The new Broadway revival of Harold Pinter’s marital drama “Betrayal,” starring Daniel Craig (the current James Bond) and his real-life wife, Oscar winner Rachel Weisz (“The Constant Gardener”), set a box-office record at the Barrymore Theater last week for its first week of performances, a spokesman for the production said on Monday.

    “Betrayal,” which also stars Rafe Spall, grossed $1,100,818 for seven performances, besting the record of $1,066,582 set by “Death of a Salesman” for its seven final performances in the spring of 2012. The box-office appeal of Mr. Craig has helped turn “Betrayal” into the hottest ticket on Broadway this fall, with performances sold out last week; audience members paid as much as $423, the top premium price ticket for the best seats – an extraordinary amount for a play. Hit musicals usually command the highest premium prices; the only show with a higher top ticket is the Tony Award-winning musical “Book of Mormon,” which charges as much as $477 a seat.

    Scott Rudin, the lead producer of “Betrayal,” also produced “Mormon” and the 2012 “Death of a Salesman” revival; Mike Nichols, the director of “Betrayal,” also directed “Salesman.”

    Among other Broadway shows, the musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” registered a slightly uptick at the box office compared to the previous week, grossing a relatively weak $654,748; its ticket sales had been sliding through September. The new revival of “Romeo and Juliet,” which opened to mixed-to-negative reviews last month, dropped nearly 20 percent at the box office last week, grossing $366,705. Overall, Broadway musicals and plays grossed $21.4 million last week, compared to $19.5 million last week and $20.1 million for the comparable week last season.

  • Record Sales for ‘Betrayal’

    Broadway Box Office: ‘Betrayal’ Booms with Daniel Craig
    Starry revival tops $1 million in an week that saw the Main Stem overall perk up
    Powered by the Broadway return of Daniel Craig, the starry revival of “Betrayal” made a boffo B.O. bow last week, vaulting into the millionaires’ club with just seven previews under its belt.
    Show, co-starring Rachel Weisz and Rafe Spall, rang in $1,100,818 for its seven shows (one fewer than the traditional eight, to which “Betrayal” will step up next week), breaking the Barrymore Theater box office record that had previously been set by another star-driven revival, “Death of a Salesman,” in 2012. Like “Betrayal,” “Salesman” was helmed by Mike Nichols and produced by a commercial team led by Scott Rudin.

    Production’s stellar sales come as no surprise, given the advance hype that the show had essentially sold out its limited run even before performances started. The new staging of Harold Pinter’s 1978 drama also marks a return to the Rialto for Craig, who demonstrated his legit B.O. muscle when he co-starred with Hugh Jackman in the hit play “A Steady Rain” in 2009.

    “Betrayal” helped push overall Broadway sales up last week compared to the prior frame, as did the concurrent but less spectacular start of previews for Manhattan Theater Club’s Mary-Louise Parker topliner “The Snow Geese” ($200,041 for seven). For the second week in a row, the much-lauded revival of “The Glass Menagerie” ($641,797), boosted by rave reviews and a cast that includes Zachary Quinto, logged the biggest gain of the sesh in a week that saw almost every individual title rise, if to a lesser degree.

    The Rialto revival of “The Trip to Bountiful” ($673,002 for seven) posted a healthy bump attributable to the fact that it was the last full week of perfs for the production, for which Cicely Tyson picked up a Tony, before it closes Oct. 9.

    New musical “Big Fish” ($643,550) slipped, but that’s to be expected in a week that accommodated press perfs and the heavily comped Oct. 6 opening. Legiters won’t know for a few weeks just how severely sales will be dampened by the tuner’s fresh crop of mostly mixed-to-downbeat reviews.

    Orlando Bloom starrer “Romeo and Juliet” ($366,705) also was down, slipping about 19%, and struggling tuner “Soul Doctor” ($111,912) continued to look terminal.

    Overall Broadway cume rose nearly $2 million to $21.4 million for 28 shows now running, and attendance climbed to 215,124. With big-money outing “Betrayal” launching and more shows still joining the slate, sales look poised to continue to climb in the coming weeks.

    Fascinated by Greece says Daniel Craig, who according to reports has begun intensive research to find the hermitage of Patmos .

    The James Bond and his wife, also an actress , Rachel Weisz have been impressed by the incredible atmosphere of the island of the Apocalypse, and have put soluble and tethered to find them the perfect home that will become the earthly paradises .

    They even commissioned a well-known lawyer to make the necessary contacts , giving him a free hand to delay as long as necessary until you find the best for him and his family.

    Awwww, thanks. I’d love to see the full version!

    here’s the complete Times article

    The neon lights are bright on Broadway. With takings up and a raft of treats either already on or on their way, things are looking good for the Great White Way Daniel Craig strides on stage, looking splendid in a Seventies suit and raincoat. I’m as delighted as anyone by this, but the crowd’s reaction still takes me by surprise. It’s a year since I’d been on Broadway, and I’d forgotten how star entrances get rounds of applause here. And even though The New York Times’s chief theatre critic last year called for the end of routine standing ovations, my five days in town suggest they remain the rule, not the exception.
    Pavlovian showbiz responses make some sense, I suppose, when it’s Orlando Bloom’s self-consciously rugged Romeo motorbiking his way on stage in a new (and, sadly, uninvolving) production of Romeo and Juliet. The bike then freewheels rather feebly into the wings as Romeo makes his first exit, highlighting the lack of revs elsewhere in David Leveaux’s production. However, applause for Craig’s entrance is way out of whack with his role in Harold Pinter’s love-triangle masterpiece Betrayal, which is all about adultery in Kilburn.

    Not that this is some arthouse event at one of the not-for-profit theatres that are New York’s closest equivalent to our subsidised sector. Betrayal, which also stars Craig’s offstage wife Rachel Weisz as his on stage wife and Rafe Spall as his best friend (and her lover), has already taken more than $10 million (£6.3 million) for its 14-week run, an astonishing amount for a non-musical. And I suppose when you are paying anything up to $423 (£266) for a seat, you can react to the sudden appearance of James Bond a few feet in front of you any way you please.

    I paid $150 (£94) for a seat at the back of the stalls in the first week of preview. And although Mike Nichols’s production still has more previews to go, for the most part it looked in grand shape to me. In the first, Craig-free scene, Weisz has a wonderful moment when she abandons her apparent poise by gulping at Spall’s pint while he pops to the bar. The final scene – which, owing to the backward chronology of the play, is also the start of the affair – has a moment of guileless joy as all three collapse laughing on a bed together. For a moment I thought that it was a genuine moment of corpsing.

    We are used to Craig, as Bond, suggesting all sorts of internal life to a clenched, determined man. It turns out to be a transferable talent: he is pretty much the perfect performer of Pinter. He brings out the vulnerability of his pugilistic cuckold, Robert, in a way I’ve never seen any actor manage. I didn’t applaud Craig’s entrance, but at the curtain call I cheered.

    @Fan: Thanks for sharing! I’m really happy that people are recognizing his personality and talent.

  • Rie

    @Fan: Thanks a lot, Fan. The article inclined me to set off to NY at once!!

  • Eve

    Yeah, the article is also on IMDB on Daniel’s board. Someone had pasted it there before this one appeared here. Great read, but I knew it would go brilliantly.
