Sad news today – the Bullets Over Broadway musical is set to close next month. The final show will be on 24th August.
The musical opened in April but the expensive production has not managed to be a blockbuster. There was talk of moving the show, but it looks like the decision has been made to shut.
The musical was based on Allen’s 1994 film Bullets Over Broadway and was directed by Susan Stroman. It opened on 10th April and had just passed it’s 100th show.
Lead producers Letty Aronson and Julian Schlossberg, said in a statement:
We are tremendously proud of this show and every single person involved with it. It has been a true pleasure, and we know that ‘Bullets Over Broadway’ will have a long life in future productions to come.
Very sad news – in particular we planned to go to New York and see it next year.
You can get tickets to the final shows over at the official website.
