Oh, Hello on Broadway, the two-hander comedy show starring Nick Kroll and John Mulaney as a pair of crotchety and opinionated old men who comment on everything from politics to Broadway (which they insist on pronouncing ”Bridway”), will wrap up its limited run January 22 in the black.
Producers announced that the show at the Lyceum Theatre will have paid back its $2.9 million capitalization, since opening on October 10, 2016. The show will have played 8 previews and 120 regular performances.
The production will be filmed in front of live audiences January 19 and 20 for broadcast at a future date.
It was the first new play of the season to recoup. This season‘s Broadway revival of The Front Page also announced recoupment of its full $4.875 million capitalization the week of January 1.
The show benefited from nightly surprise guests, who included Laura Benanti, Katie Couric, Michael Riedel, Fred Savage, Seth Meyers, Josh Groban, Alan Alda, Will Ferrell, John Oliver, Whoopi Goldberg, Paul Shaffer, Jason Alexander, Andrea Martin, Stephen Colbert, Andrew Rannells, Conan O’Brien, Rachel Bloom, Tina Fey, David Byrne, Martin Short, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Pratt, Matthew Broderick, Annaleigh Ashford, Amy Schumer, Steven Pasquale, Austin Pendleton, Kelli O’Hara, and dozens more.
