The Broadway revival of "Glengarry Glen Ross," starring Al Pacino and Bobby Cannavale, has plenty to be happy about this Christmas.

Producers said Wednesday that the show, which marks the 30th anniversary of David Mamet's Pulitzer Prize-winning play about the backbiting world of salesmen, has recouped its $3.3 million investment.

The revival's cast also includes Jeremy Shamos, John C. McGinley, David Harbour and Richard Schiff.

"Glengarry" is the first production of the current Broadway season to recoup its investment, The New York Times notes.

Reviews were mixed when the play opened on Dec. 8, but were better than those for "The Anarchist," a new Mamet play that closed this fall after only 23 previews and 17 performances.
