Producers of the two-character Broadway play A Steady Rain announced Sept. 29 — the play's opening night at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre — that the production shattered the record for highest weekly gross for any non-musical production ever on Broadway.

For the week ending Sept. 20, the Keith Huff play took in $1,167,954, also a house record at the Schoenfeld Theatre. The highest gross for a non-musical was previously Billy Crystal’s 700 Sundays with $1,061,688 for the week ending May 22, 2005.

In related news, Steady Rain co-star Hugh Jackman did what many theatregoers over the past few years would have liked to themselves: He recently stopped the show mid-performance to admonish a patron whose cell phone interrupted the play. Someone happened to be filming the performance, and posted Jackman's reaction.

Jackman co-stars with Daniel Craig in the two-hander, which is playing a limited run through Dec. 6.
