A Behanding in Spokane plays final performance

The world premiere production of A Behanding In Spokane, by Academy Award-winning playwright Martin McDonagh, ends its 16-week engagement on 6 Jun 2010 as scheduled.

The dark comedy opened at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on 4 Mar 2010, following previews from 15 Feb, where it played 20 previews and 108 regular performances.

Directed by John Crowley, A Behanding In Spokane stars Christopher Walken (Carmichael), Sam Rockwell (Mervyn), Anthony Mackie (Toby) and Zoe Kazan (Marilyn).

The title is just the starting point; take a man searching for his missing hand, two con artists out to make a few hundred bucks, and an overly curious hotel clerk, and the rest is up for grabs.

A Behanding In Spokane marks Martin McDonagh's first American-set play.

The dark comedy was produced on Broadway by Robert Fox, Carole Shorenstein Hays, Debra Black, Stephanie P. McClelland, Ostar, Roger Berlind, Scott Rudin and The Shubert Organization.
