What's the rush for producers of A Tale Of Two Cities?
Shutter the thought, but apparently, they're cutting their losses early as they are expediting the closing for Broadway musical flop. The show will close tomorrow instead of one week from Sunday.
To use of the critical quotes currently highlighted on the tuner's Web site (thank you Elysa Gardner), it's impossible not to be moved. Surely, these must be the worst of times for the cast and crew alike.
This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).

As someone who has been involved in both politics and public relations, it's no wonder I love watching theatre. Good or bad, it's the raw energy of seeing a live performance that gets my adrenaline pumping. From the moment I saw my very first Broadway show ("Annie" in London in 1979), I was hooked. Now I see as many as 70 shows each year ranging from soaring musicals to two-hander plays. And these eyes just may be in an audience near you!
