Jude Law's 'Hamlet' goes from red to black

Jude Law and his fellow cast mates in Broadway's production of "Hamlet" have no reason to be melancholy: They are an official hit.

Producers of the Shakespeare classic now playing at the Broadhurst Theatre said Wednesday they've recouped the show's $2.5 million costs in less than three months.

Says producer Arielle Tepper Madover: "It's heartening to see that Shakespeare can be a commercial success on Broadway, as well as seeing so many young audience members at the Broadhurst experiencing their first Shakespeare production."

The production began performances on Sept. 12 and plays until Dec. 6.

Law has been joined on Broadway this season by two other film stars seeing large box-office crowds: Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig in "A Steady Rain."
