Poll Results Don't Seek To Turn Back Times

Poll Results Don't Seek To Turn Back Times

After it was announced last week that the Bob Dylan-inspired Twyla Tharp production of The Times They Are A-Changin' was closing, I asked via the Steve On Broadway poll whether you were disappointed.

An overwhelming 86.6% of you indicated that you were not. Exactly half of you said you "thought it was a bad premise from the start," while another 33.3% replied that you simply "don't like jukebox musicals."

Fair enough, although I was clearly in the minority in saying I had hoped to see it (of course, I'd like to see everything if given the chance...). Only 13.4% of us indicated we were disappointed. Of the 10% of you who had actually seen the show, 6.7% thought it deserved a wider audience.

The Times They Are A-Changin' closes this Sunday after a mere 27 regular performances.

With the closing of this poll, there are two other ones available for your opinion. One asks whether you plan to see Mary Poppins, while the other asks if the additions of Richard Maltby, Jr. and Graciela Daniele to the production of The Pirate Queen are enough for the show to succeed on Broadway. As always, feel free to share your comments after you vote!

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
