“The Ferryman” has recouped its investment on Broadway, the production announced Sunday. 

The play, which won the 2019 Tony Award for Best Play, finished its run on July 7. Featuring a full company of 35 people, as well as live animals on stage, the play was capitalized for up to $6.7 million, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. 

“The Ferryman,” written by Jez Butterworth and directed by Sam Mendes, opened on Broadway on Oct. 21, 2018, after a run on the West End. It was produced by Sonia Friedman Productions and Neal Street Productions. 

Bolstered by positive reviews, the play’s box office started out strong, with grosses reaching a high of $1.04 million in the holiday week ended Dec. 30, 2018. Grosses began flagging in the winter, but the show received a boost from its Tony Award win and began an upward trajectory for its final weeks, bringing in $949,693 in the most recent week. 

Of the 30-plus shows last season, “The Ferryman” joins “Network,” “To Kill a Mockingbird,” “The Lifespan of a Fact” and “The Boys in the Band” in announcing recoupment.
