The real-life husband-and-wife team Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz helped propel "Betrayal" to a Broadway record — and the show hasn't even officially opened yet.

Data released Monday from the Broadway League shows that the first seven previews of the Harold Pinter revival earned $1,100,818, breaking the Barrymore Theater's weekly box office record. It took the crown set by the recent revival of "Death of a Salesman," which grossed $1,066,582 in June 2012. The two shows share the same director, Mike Nichols, and lead producer, Scott Rudin.
