Smash-hit musical WICKED rang in the New Year (10) with a new Broadway record - by becoming the first production to break $2.1 million (£1.3 million) in weekly ticket sales.
Just a week after the spectacular broke its own Thanksgiving weekend (Nov09) gross record, it did it again for the week ending 3 January (10).
Last week was the third time in just six weeks the Broadway hit grossed over $2 million (£1.25 million) for one week of performances.
Additionally, the show's three other North American productions broke house records in San Francisco, Providence and Schenectady last week, bringing the musical's one-week North American box office gross to a whopping $7 million (£4.4 million).
The film is almost half an hour longer than 'The Force Awakens'.
The actress will no doubt be returning for the long-running FX series.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
