For the week ending Jan. 1, Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark grossed $2,941,790.20.

That figure, attained in a nine-performance holiday week, shattered the record for the highest single-week gross of any show in Broadway history, besting the previous record of $2,228,235 set by Wicked in 2011.

Playing to 17,375 audience members (100.02 percent capacity of The Foxwoods Theatre), Spider-Man also enjoyed the highest single-week attendance by any show in Broadway history.

"We are thrilled that the public has taken such a liking to this show,” said producers Michael Cohl and Jeremiah J. Harris in a statement. “The audience continues to grow, and it is great to enter the New Year with such momentum.”

Spider-Man features music and lyrics by 22-time Grammy Award winners Bono and The Edge, direction by Philip William McKinley, original direction by Tony Award winner Julie Taymor and book co-written by Taymor, Glen Berger and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

The show currently stars Reeve Carney as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Patrick Page as Norman Osborn/Green Goblin, Rebecca Faulkenberry as Mary Jane Watson and Christina Sajous as Arachne.
