www.ABehandingInSpokane.com

This is the final week to see A BEHANDING IN SPOKANE starring Academy Award-winner Christopher Walken, who  received Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle nominations for his rol; Sam Rockwell, Anthony Mackie and Zoe Kazan.  A BEHANDING IN SPOKANE is playing on Broadway at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre (236 West 45th Street).  Directed by John Crowley, the play opened March 4 and must close Sunday, June 6 after playing a strict 16-week engagement.

“Christopher Walken is a scrofulous wonder to behold.  He has seldom been more enthralling.”

–Ben Brantley, The New York Times.

                                                              “Sam Rockwell is super.” – Joe Dziemianowicz, The Daily News

“Anthony Mackie is wonderful.” – John Simon, Bloomberg News

“Zoe Kazan is perfect.  I think she’s the best stage actress of her generation.” – Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal

“You’ll spend an hour and a half laughing non-stop!” – Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal

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.
