Academy Award-winner Martin McDonagh's A BEHANDING IN SPOKANE, starring Christopher Walken and stage and screen stars Sam Rockwell, Anthony Mackie and Zoe Kazan plays on Broadway at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre (236 West 45th Street). The production, directed by John Crowley, opened on March 4 and will play a strict 16-week engagement, through June 6 only.
A BEHANDING IN SPOKANE is McDonagh's first play to originate on Broadway.
The title is just the starting point; take a man searching for his missing hand (Walken), two con artists out to make a few hundred bucks (Mackie and Kazan), and an overly curious hotel clerk (Rockwell), and the rest is up for grabs. A BEHANDING IN SPOKANE is Martin McDonagh's hilariously black comedy, a world premiere which marks McDonagh's first American-set play.
The design team is comprised of Scott Pask (Scenic and Costume), who won a Tony Award for his set design for The Pillowman, and Brian MacDevitt (Lighting), who won a Tony Award for his lighting design for The Pillowman.
A BEHANDING IN SPOKANE is produced by Robert Fox, Carole Shorenstein Hays, Debra Black, Stephanie P. McClelland, Ostar, Roger Berlind, Scott Rudin and The Shubert Organization.
