Time to say “Hasa Diga Eebowai.”

Tony Award-winning Broadway producer Roy Furman, best known for “The Book of Mormon” and “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,” sold his sprawling Time Warner Center condominium unit for $27 million, according to property records filed with the city Thursday.

Indian mogul Shiv Nadar’s HCL Holdings is the buyer of the 71st-floor pad, records show. Nadar’s daughter Roshni is the company’s CEO.

The 3,923-square-foot unit at 25 Columbus Circle was initially listed for $35 million. Furman bought the apartment as a sponsor unit in 2005 for almost $10 million.

The apartment includes three bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms.

The Columbus Circle tower received media attention after the New York Times completed an investigation earlier this year into mysterious, foreign buyers at the Related Cos.-developed complex who hide their identities behind limited-liability entities.

Furman also serves on the boards of Jefferies Capital Partners, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and used to serve on the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s board, the New York Times previously reported.
