The producers of the Broadway revival of David Hare's Skylight at the John Golden Theatre, starring Carey Mulligan and Bill Nighy, announced today that the production has recouped its entire capitalization.

Directed by Stephen Daldry and costarring Matthew Beard, the production began previews March 13, opened April 2, and will run through June 21. This revival originated at Wyndham's Theatre on London's West End in summer 2014.

Mulligan, a 2015 Tony and Drama Desk nominee, plays Kyra Hollis, a London schoolteacher who, on a wintry evening, receives a visit from her former lover, restaurateur Tom Sergeant (2015 Tony nominee Nighy), whose wife has recently died. As they attempt to rekindle their relationship, they must contend with conflicting ideologies that stand in the way. Tony nominee Beard completes the cast as Tom's college-age son, Edward. The production is also nominated for 2015 Tony Awards for Best Revival of a Play, Best Director of a Play (Daldry), Best Scenic Design of a Play (Bob Crowley), and Best Lighting Design of a Play (Natasha Katz).
