UPDATED, Nov. 16, 6:20 p.m.: Broadway producers Janet and Howard Kagan have listed their Upper East Side townhouse for $44 million.

Built in 1895, the 25-foot mansion at 11 East 82nd Street spans 12,729 square feet and is asking $3,456 per foot.

The Kagans, who head Maxolev Productions, produced “Tuck Everlasting” and “Pippin,” which won a Tony Award in 2013. They bought the house for $24.5 million in 2009 from investor Keith Gollust. The couple also owned a penthouse at 975 Park Avenue, which they sold for $20.3 million in 2014.

Years before the Kagans bought 11 East 82nd, a company affiliated with financier Ron Perelman paid $10 million for the property. Two years later, the entity sold it to entertainment executive Scott Sassa for $8.9 million. Sassa then sold the mansion Gollust, who is chairman of Synta Pharmaceuticals, though it’s unclear how much he paid.

The limestone-and-brick house, located just off Fifth Avenue, was recently renovated and features a wine cellar and gym. It also has five working fireplaces and outdoor terraces. The Corcoran Group’s Elizabeth Sahlman has the listing.
