NEW YORK — Producers of "All the Way" have more reason to smile just days before the Tony Awards — their play has recouped its investment.

The production said Thursday it had earned back its $3.9 million costs, just days after celebrating its 100th performance.

Starring Bryan Cranston, Robert Schenkkan's play focuses on President Lyndon B. Johnson's first year in office and explores both his fight for re-election and the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It has been nominated for a best play Tony, and Cranston is a leading contender for best actor.

"All The Way" made its debut at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and then jumped to the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

About a third of shows generally recoup their investments.
