Prior to its first preview (Feb. 2), the world premiere had taken in over $13.5 million in advance sales at the box office. That figure is the highest advance for any spring production on Broadway and, according to the New York Times, beats the previous record for a play, $13.05 million for the 2013 revival of Harold Pinter's Betrayal (produced by Scott Rudin, the producer of Fish in the Dark).
