Mauritius is a play which opened on Broadway at the Biltmore Theatre on October 4, 2007, and closed November 25, 2007. Written by Theresa Rebeck, previously a Pulitzer Prize for Drama-nominee, the play was her Broadway debut. It is about two sisters who inherit a stamp collection which might be worth a fortune. The title refers to the "Blue Mauritius", one of the world's rarest stamps. Many of the characters try to out con each other in the attempt to reap possible rewards. The premiere production was held in Boston by the Huntington Theatre Company at the Boston Center for the Arts' Calderwood Pavilion in October 2006.[1] It was offered at Chicago's Northlight Theatre February 25 to April 5, 2009.[2] The Broadway production earned Bobby Cannavale a Tony Award nomination for Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Play.[3]
