Impending Stake For Lestat’s Heart

Impending Stake For Lestat’s Heart

Darkness is normally welcomed for vampires, but effective May 28, the lights on Broadway’s Lestat will officially dim for the final time. The announcement comes only one day after the cast took to the Sony Studios to record their cast album. Based on the wildly successful Anne Rice novels, Lestat was Sir Elton John’s third Broadway outing, but first collaboration there with his longtime songwriting partner Bernie Taupin.

The musical, which only enjoyed 39 regular performances, did manage to snag a couple Tony Award nominations, but will likely be long forgotten by the time they’re handed out in June. Perhaps this third of three wildly unsuccessful vampire musicals will place the final stake through the ill-fated genre.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
