VIDEO: HANGMEN Cast Celebrates Opening Night on Broadway

Hangmen is now running on Broadway at the Golden Theatre.

Martin McDonagh's Olivier Award-winning and New York Drama Critics' Circle Award-winning comedy Hangmen opened just last night at Broadway's Golden Theatre (252 West 45th Street).

In his small pub in the North of England in the mid-1960s, Harry is something of a local celebrity. But what's the second best hangman in England to do on the day they've abolished hanging? Amongst the cub reporters and pub regulars, people are dying to hear Harry's reaction to the news when an intriguing stranger, Mooney, from London -with a very different wardrobe and motive - enters their world.

Two of the show's stars, Gaby French and Andy Nyman, who play Shirley and Syd, check in with BroadwayWorld's Richard Ridge ahead of the big night to chat about (finally) opening on Broadway!
