Anatomy of a Flop

Leap of Faith caused quite a stir recently when it announced that it would close before the Tony Awards.  It is the first musical in almost 50 years to be nominated for Best Musical and still manage to close before the Tony Awards (the last one was Skyscraper in 1965).  It is also the first musical since 1996's Swinging on a Star to be nominated for the Best Musical Tony without receiving ANY other nominations.  Given this unique combination of Tony trivia, maybe it makes sense that it is closing so soon, but the New York Times wanted to give this a closer look.  Check out Patrick Healy's article about the anatomy of a flop below.
