Broadway’s ‘Skylight’ Recoups Ahead of Tony Ceremony

The Broadway revival of “Skylight,” currently up for seven Tony Awards, has recouped its capitalization the week before the Tonys, according to producers.

A Broadway remount of a London hit starring Bill Nighy and Carey Mulligan, “Skylight” has attracted capacity crowds, or close to it, since it began Broadway previews in March. The production won glowing reviews after its April 2 opening, and has since then earned weekly grosses between $750,000 and $800,000.

Producers didn’t confirm the capitalization costs of “Skylight,” but Broadway plays can often come in around $3 million.

“Skylight” is up for the Tony Award for play revival, with Nighy and Mulligan in the race for acting trophies along with their cast mate, Matthew Beard. Director Stephen Daldry and designers Bob Crowley (set) and Natasha Katz (lights).

Backed by a team of producers led by Robert Fox and Scott Rudin, “Skylight” is set to wrap up its 13-week run in New York June 21.
