That’s the guaranteed minimum for Scarlett Johansson for her role as Maggie in the Broadway revival of Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer classic, but she could earn more if the play does well, according to offering papers obtained by Bloomberg News. Johansson also gets 7.5% of ticket sales above $530,000 (after deducting for commissions and averaged over four weeks). Once investors are paid 10% beyond their initial outlay, her take rises to 10% of grosses plus 5% of profit, according to Bloomberg. Weekly sales must average $750,211, excluding credit card commissions, to repay investors over the 15-week run. Al Pacino is getting one of Broadway’s top pay packages for Glengarry Glen Ross with a guaranteed weekly minimum of $125,000 plus 5% of profits. Cat On A Hot Tin Roof will begin preview performances December 18 and is slated to open January 17.
