Broadway Smackdown: Katie Tops Harry Potter

In its first full week of performances, the Holmes-powered revival of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons was the hottest dramatic ticket on the Great White Way, grossing $684,002 for the week ended Sunday, according to Playbill.com.

Costarring John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest and Patrick Wilson, All My Sons is still in previews until Oct. 16. But due in part to the buzz (and contoversy) surrounding Holmes’ debut, the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre was nearly full last week, 97.6 percent of its 1,052 seats were sold at an average ticket price of $83.31.

The next closest drama was another Hollywood star vehicle: the Daniel Radcliffe-led revival of Equus. Harry Potter’s clothes-eschewing alter ego brought in $597,346 at the Broadhurst last week. The theater, which has 1,206 seats, had 65.3 percent of its tickets sold at an average of $94.76 apiece.

Still, the dramas aren’t in the same league as the mega-musicals. Wicked tallied nearly $1.4 million in ticket sales last week, while Jersey Boys raked in about $1.1 million.
