NEW YORK —

Bryan Cranston left Broadway with a Tony Award and a new record.

The former "Breaking Bad" star ended the run of "All the Way" on Sunday with a huge weekly haul at the box office of $1,623,495, a new milestone for a play during an eight-performance week in the history of Broadway. The average ticket price was $141 and the top premium went for $225.

Robert Schenkkan's play focuses on President Lyndon B. Johnson's first year in office and explores both his fight for re-election and the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It earned back its $3.9 million costs, just days after celebrating its 100th performance.

It won the best play Tony in June and Cranston as L.B.J. won the best actor in a play statuette.
