Of Mice and Men concluded its record-breaking run on Broadway at the Longacre Theatre on July 27, 2014. The landmark production starring James Franco, Chris O’Dowd, Leighton Meester and Jim Norton was the first Broadway production filmed by National Theatre Live.
This critically-acclaimed classic hadn’t been on Broadway in over 40 years and broke Longacre Theatre box office records.
In the role of “investor” we became involved in the show based on the starry cast and the incredibly well-respected director (Anna Shapiro), who we trusted would give this American classic its much overdue revival. When funding productions, we look for opportunities that will give us a strong financial return on investment. Out of all Broadway shows in its season, Of Mice and Men was the first show to recoup its investment in a record-breaking 12 weeks, leaving our investment team quite thrilled with the results.
