The Tonys Take a Toll
Now that the Tony Awards have been handed out, you can expect some of the shows that didn't take home awards to close up shop (and that doesn't include the shows that had already announced their closing dates, such as Rent).
For example, today was the final performance for Cry-Baby. The musical opened on Broadway on April 24. (So much for my "Best Musical" prediction.)
The latest show to throw in the towel is A Catered Affair, which will close on July 27 after 116 regular performances on Broadway.
But the good news is, this means more new shows are on the way, including the recently-announced revival of Pal Joey and Samson Raphaelson's 1934 comedy Accent on Youth, to name just two.
It's the circle of life on Broadway!
