Two Shows to Shutter Soon
Not even half way through the new Broadway season and already two open-ended productions have posted closing notices. The first is Tony-nominee Frank Wildhorn's musical adaptation of Bonnie and Clyde starring Laura Osnes and Jeremy Jordan. The musical, which opened to mixed-to-negative reviews but which received some good word of mouth buzz apparently never picked up at the box office and will be ending its run on December 30th. The revival of Noel Coward's Private Lives, which was directed by Richard Eyre and stars Golden Globe-winner and Emmy-nominee Kim Cattrall, has also posted a closing notice, closing one day after Bonnie and Clyde on December 31st.
