I don't know but I have to assume that the entire cast of The Inheritance will be paid a combined amount equal to what Nathan Lane or Andrew Garfield might have gotten for Angels. I may be wrong, maybe they did it for a reasonable low-above-minimum star salary but I'm guessing very few members of this unknown company will be able to negotiate for too much.
This is also a new play without the exhaustion American audiences maybe have with Angels, it being taught in schools so much, having an acclaimed and still streaming TV mini-series/movie, and for some theater goers an off-broadway revival not terribly long ago, not to mention the people who saw the original and might not have wanted to see a new production or didn't want to pay so much to do so.

Who knows but perhaps the combo of being an exciting and raved about NEW play that almost no one here has seen (relatively speaking) and being the "snob" theatrical event of the season (perhaps, assuming critics respond as expected) will make it a very hot ticket.
