Pillowman Recoups Investment And Will Close At A Profit

As The Pillowman heads into its final week, the shows producers announced that the critically-praised production had recouped its entire $2.2 million investment and will close at a profit.  The Martin McDonagh dark comedy, starring Billy Crudup, Jeff Goldblum, Zeljko Ivanek and Michael Stuhlbarg and directed by John Crowley, opened April 10th  and will have played 23 previews and 185 performances as of its final performance this Sunday.  Though recoupement is increasingly rare for any play on Broadway, The Pillowmans feat is all the more extraordinary in light of the plays controversial subject matter and the tiny capacity of the Booth - at 775 seats, Broadways third smallest commercial house. The Pillowman is produced by Boyett Ostar and Robert Fox, Arielle Tepper, Stephanie McClelland, Debra Black, Dede Harris, Morton Swinsky, Roy Furman/Jon Avnet in association with Joyce Schweickert.
