Martin McDonagh's Hangmen officially opened on Broadway April 21 at the Golden Theatre. The Olivier-winning comedy had played only 13 preview performances when Broadway went dark in March 2020. It returned April 8 for a limited 10-week engagement, set to continue through June 18.
Alfie Allen and David Threlfall lead the cast of the dark comedy. The story centers on Harry (Threlfall), a hangman who finds himself unemployed on the day that hanging is abolished. Set in a small pub in Northern England in the 1960s, regulars gather to hear Harry's reaction to the news when a mysterious stranger from London, Mooney (Allen), enters their world.
