Bryan Cranston's hit Broadway show All the Way has broken New York theatre records by becoming the first play to gross over $1.4 million (£875,000) in a week.

Just two weeks after the play and Cranston picked up Tony Awards, theatre fans flocked to see the Breaking Bad star as former U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson.

The play by Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Schenkkan shattered the record for eight performances during a single week.

All The Way has become one of this season's biggest Broadway hits, and went into profit last month (May14).

The play closes on Sunday (29Jun14) after 131 performances.
