Fizzled Blonde

Fizzled Blonde

Oh! My! God! Another Broadway musical is about to bite the dust.

Legally Blonde - The Musical, based on the infinitely superior 2001 film, has posted its closing notice.

The Jerry Mitchell-helmed and choreographed tuner will shutter after its final Palace Theatre performance on October 19. It will have played a total of 595 regular performances when it closes.

Despite the fact that the show is still pulling a capacity crowd of over 60%, the average ticket price last week of just $52.13 hints at a deeper issue: the effect that the worrisome economy may be having on Broadway as a whole. Not even a dose of stunt casting via an MTV reality series could keep a substantial number of tickets from being sold at TKTS.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
