NEW YORK (AP) - The play “Of Mice and Men” may not have taken home any Tony Awards but it still has good news to share - it’s in the black.

The show starring Chris O’Dowd, James Franco and Leighton Meester said Monday that it recouped its $3.8 million capitalization in just 12 weeks. The play, adapted by a John Steinbeck novel, follows two tragic migrant workers trying to make their way through the Depression.

It’s another feather in the cap this season for producer David Binder, whose “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” just won four Tonys and last week set a box office record at the Belasco Theatre with just over $1 million for just seven shows.

Other plays to recoup this season include “All the Way” and “The Glass Menagerie.”
