Hugh Jackman's one-man Broadway concert show went out with quite a bang.

The final week of the show earned well over $2 million.

That's the highest weekly gross by the theater company that owns the house where Jackman played.

Total, Jackman's show brought in $14,638,428, according to producers. He also raised a record $1,789,580 for the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS charity.

Jackman is best known for his wolverine roles in "The X-Men" movies, but he has also proven to be a hit with Broadway fans.
