Broadway Closures

So it was a bloodbath on Broadway this weekend as 9 shows - including the super-popular "Hairspray", "Grease" and "Young Frankenstein" - closed. A true sign of the economic times, when theatre - usually such a great escape from our real-life woes - starts taking the hit financially too. Granted, this is a typical time of year for shows to end their run on the Great White Way, and among those nine were shows which were only intended to be seasonal offerings - such as Liza Minelli's new show and "White Christmas" - were among the closures. But this is still one of the biggest shut downs in B'way memory.

RIP; can't wait for the revivals. XO
