Now Closing on Broadway

Associated Press

April 22, 2004

NEW YORK -- The Broadway revival of "Gypsy" starring Bernadette Peters will close May 30 after a 14-month run of 451 performances.

The Arthur Laurents-Jule Styne-Stephen Sondheim musical had originally been scheduled to shut Feb. 28 but pulled down its closing notice after an increase in ticket sales and concessions in the form of salary, royalty and rent reductions.

At the time, producer Robert Fox said tickets were on sale through Memorial Day and it was reported the show had recouped about half of its $8 million investment.

The musical, which opened to generally positive notices in April 2003, grossed $472,967 last week, filling 70 percent of the seats at the Shubert Theatre.

Also folding is "Sixteen Wounded," a new play by Eliam Kraiem about the friendship between an aging Jewish baker, portrayed by Judd Hirsch, and a Palestinian youth in Amsterdam.

The drama received generally downbeat notices from the critics and closes April 25 after a run of only 12 performances.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
