BC/EFA wrote on Facebook:

"After 115 performances, the acclaimed production of Jez Butterworth's The River on Broadway directed by Ian Rickson and starring the remarkable Hugh Jackman closes on Sunday at Circle in the Square Theatre. Of those total performances, Hugh was joined on stage by four incredible women - Laura Donnelly, Cush Jumbo, Jessica Love and Kerry Warren - in raising $1,045,990 over 48 of them, from November 18-December 27! Hats off to stage managers Michael J. Passaro, Pat Sosnow, company manager Heidi Neven, star dresser Geoffrey Polischuk, the crew and front of house staff for their generous support and the cheerful extra efforts making it all possible. A special salute to Irving Milgrom, Lauren Klein and Brian Rao for making sure all backstage gears were turning well and safely, and to Sonia Friedman and The River producers, Paul Libin and all at Circle for making us welcome.

"Every show's participation in Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS' fundraising campaigns is a unique team effort that is deeply appreciated. This season our friends at The River set the bar across Broadway.

"Thank you, Hugh for leading your team with such generosity of spirit and commitment to the delight of your audiences. The money you have raised is being put to work in ways you can be proud of."
