American Buffalo Heading For Early Closure
Haley Joel Osment and John Leguizamo's run in Broadway play American Buffalo is likely to be one of the New York theatreworld's shortest ever - it's set to close after less than a week.
The David Mamet play opened on Monday (17Nov08) with much fanfare and boasting an impressive cast that also includes Cedric the Entertainer.
But it has fallen foul of both critics and theatregoers, with only 50 per cent of seats currently being filled.
Producers are preparing to cut their losses and close on Sunday (23Nov08), unless ticket sales improve dramatically, according to industry paper Daily Variety.
