IN FINAL WEEK ON BROADWAY

SHOW GROSSES $724,155.50 FOR WEEK ENDING JUNE 27

The Donmar Warehouse production of RED broke the house record at the Golden Theatre in its final week on Broadway.  RED, the biggest Tony Award winner of the 2009-2010 season, grossed $724,155.50 for eight performances in the week ending June 27, breaking the record set by Avenue Q on December 31, 2006 for a nine performance week.

RED recouped its $2.25 million production costs as of the week ending June 20, 2010, officially entering the hit column.   RED opened on Broadway on Thursday, April 1, after beginning previews on March 11.  The production ended its limited engagement yesterday at the Golden Theatre, after 101 performances and 22 previews.

RED won six 2010 Tony Awards for Best Play, Best Director (Michael Grandage), Best Featured Actor (Eddie Redmayne), Best Set (Christopher Oram), Best Lighting (Neil Austin) and Best Sound Design (Adam Cork).   The production also won three Drama Desk Awards, including Best Play and Best Director, and the Outer Critics Circle and Drama League Awards for Best Play.

RED, a new play by John Logan, starred Alfred Molina and Eddie Redmayne, who created their roles in the world premiere production at the Donmar Warehouse.  The production was directed by Donmar artistic director Michael Grandage.

The production was designed by Christopher Oram, with lighting design by Neil Austin.  Composer and sound designer was Adam Cork.
