Hugh Jackman has left a lot of broken hearts -- and records -- on Broadway.

The hunky Australian actor's one-man show ended its 10-week run Sunday afternoon at the Broadhurst Theatre, having earned $2,057,354 in its final week. That's the highest-ever weekly gross recorded by the Shubert Organization, which owns the Broadhurst and 16 other Broadway theaters. The previous record was held by the Al Pacino-led "The Merchant of Venice," which made $1,175,750 earlier this year.

Eazy-E's son not killed in car wreck

Texas authorities said Saturday they mistakenly identified the son of late rapper Eazy-E as one of eight people killed in a two-car collision.

Department of Public Safety Trooper Ryan Case said Eric Wright Jr. 's name was on a rental agreement for one of the cars that collided Friday in East Texas. He said Wright was mistakenly listed as killed but actually was not involved in the wreck.

Wright, who raps under the stage name Lil' Eazy-E, posted on Twitter that close friends died. Those killed in the rental car were Debra Thompson of Long Beach, Calif.; and Curtis Sanders, Michael Mathis, Lawrence Bridnac III, of Compton, Calif. Those killed in the other car were Sonia de la Torre, 29, of Annona and her daughter Erica, 8; son Saul Jr., 6; and son Eric, 10 months.

Case said investigators might never know what caused the fiery wreck on a remote stretch of U.S. 82 about a mile outside Annona, a town about 150 miles northeast of Dallas. The eastbound car with the four California residents crossed a center line and struck de la Torre's westbound car.

Prince Philip attends church

Britain's Prince Philip joined the rest of the Royal Family to attend their traditional New Year's Day church service.

Queen Elizabeth II's husband was admitted to a hospital just before Christmas with chest pains and underwent a successful coronary stent procedure. Philip, 90, appeared cheerful as he arrived at Sandringham church Sunday morning. The queen arrived by car, but Philip walked more than 433 yards from the house to the church.
