High Fidelity To Skip Town Sunday

High Fidelity To Skip Town Sunday

If only enough JerseyGirls (see third comment on the review summary) had a chance to see it, perhaps High Fidelity would not be closing so prematurely (although others might argue, "What took them so long?"). The closing notices were posted today for the show that only opened a week ago to mediocre reviews.

It probably didn't help that its primary Broadway competitor for rock musical fans, Spring Awakening, opened to nearly universal, ecstatic acclaim.

When High Fidelity closes this Sunday, it will have enjoyed just fourteen regular performances. The speculation will no doubt intensify on which show will be next to inhabit the Imperial Theatre. Any guesses?

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).

They're pretty brutal on Broadway, aren't they? Only 14 performances and it gets yanked! That must be close to the record.

Esther, Fourteen performances is a lifetime compared to many shows that have closed immediately after brutal reviews.

The last show to do so -- after a single performance -- was "Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All" back three years ago with Ellen Burtstyn. In fact, I was holding tickets for that one, but never got close to seeing it!
