Broadway's 'Death of a Salesman' with Philip Seymour Hoffman recoups its investment

  • Print

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The revival of "Death of a Salesman" might be terribly sad, but producers are very happy.

The production revealed Wednesday that it will recoup its $3.1 million capitalization this week. The show, which has netted seven Tony Award nominations, stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Linda Emond and Andrew Garfield.

Aurthur Miller's play about Willy Loman, a man destroyed by his own stubborn belief in the glory of American capitalism and its spell of success, opened March 15 to positive reviews.

Last week, the Mike Nichols-directed revival earned $929,340 at the Barrymore Theatre — all its gross potential — with sold-out houses over seven performances. Top premium tickets went for $425.

Traditionally, only about 3 in 10 Broadway shows recoup.
