BWW TV: Broadway Beat Sneak Peek of A BEHANDING IN SPOKANE Opening Night

The all new 20th Anniversary Season of Broadway Beat is here! This week catch up with Broadway Beat at opening night of A BEHANDING IN SPOKANE!

A BEHANDING IN SPOKANE starring Academy Award-winner Christopher Walken and stage and screen stars Sam Rockwell, Anthony Mackie and Zoe Kazan opened on Broadway on Thursday, March 4 and will play a strict 16-week engagement. Directed by directed by John Crowley, the production is playing on Broadway at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre (236 West 45th Street). A BEHANDING IN SPOKANE is McDonagh's first play to originate on Broadway.

The title is just the starting point; take a man searching for his missing hand (Walken), two con artists out to make a few hundred bucks (Mackie and Kazan), and an overly curious hotel clerk (Rockwell), and the rest is up for grabs. A BEHANDING IN SPOKANE is Martin McDonagh's hilariously black comedy, a world premiere which marks McDonagh's first American-set play.

The design team is comprised of Scott Pask (Set and Costume), who won a Tony Award for his set design for The Pillowman, and Brian MacDevitt (Lighting), who won a Tony Award for his lighting design for The Pillowman.

Tickets are available through, by phone at 212-239-6200 or 800-432-7250, or online at, for this strictly limited engagement which will run for 16 weeks only. A BEHANDING IN SPOKANE began performances on February 15.
