They'll perform through Jan. 3
The four-member foreign cast of “The Beauty Queen of Leenane,” with three Tonys among them, has received permission from Actors’ Equity to extend their contracts in the hit play. Tony winners Marie Mullen, Anna Manahan and Tom Murphy and Tony nominee Brian F. O’Byrne will now perform through Jan. 3.
In addition, the play’s producers announced that the Broadway transfer of Martin McDonagh’s play has recouped its $1.2 million capitalization, paying back investors in seven weeks. Producers are the Atlantic Theater Co., which originally brought the Druid Theater Co. production to Gotham Off Broadway, Randall L. Wreghitt, Chase Mishkin, Steven M. Levy and Leonard Soloway.
