The Broadway revival of “Glengarry Glen Ross,” starring Alan Alda and Liev Schreiber, has gone into the black.
The Tony-winning production of David Mamet’s play recouped its $2 million capitalization on Wednesday, the day of its 100th perf. Limited engagement is set to close Aug. 28.
Revival recoupment is an increasingly rare feat on Broadway these days. The Denzel Washington starrer “Julius Caesar” is the only other redux to open this season and go on to recoup. It played 81performances.
Commercial Broadway revivals that opened and closed this year without returning their investment include “La Cage aux Folles,” “The Glass Menagerie” and “On Golden Pond.”
Still running but set to close in the following days are “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” and “Steel Magnolias”; neither is expected to recoup.
