betrThe star system might be waning in Hollywood, but not when those stars take to the Broadway stage. The Mike Nichols-directed revival of the Harold Pinter play Betrayal, which stars Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Rafe Spall, just set a new Broadway box office record for a play when it grossed $1.44 million for the week ending December 19. That surpassed the mark formerly held by the Tom Hanks-starrer Lucky Guy, which earlier this year took in $1.412 million for the week ending April 21. First performed at London’s National Theatre in 1978, Betrayal ends its limited run this Sunday, January 5. Weisz and Craig play a married couple whose happiness is threatened when her long affair with her publisher husband’s lit agent best friend (Spall) is exposed.
