Piven, who played Bobby Gould, left the production unexpectedly in mid-December claiming he become seriously ill from mercury poisoning and could not continue, because of possible dire consequences. After Piven's departure, the role of Bobby was played by Jordan Lage, Norbert Leo Butz, and William H. Macy. The show eventually recouped its entire investment before its planned closing on February 22.
