High Fidelity Musical To Close After Just One Month
The $9.75 million (GBP5 million) Broadway musical High Fidelity will close on Sunday (17DEC06), just one month after opening previews were staged.
The production is based on British author Nick Hornby's best-selling book, which was adapted into a 2000 Hollywood movie starring John Cusack and Jack Black, and failed to garner healthy advance sales before opening to the public last week (07DEC06).
The New York Times critic described David Lindsay-Abaire's show as one of the "all-time most forgettable musicals".
Last week, New York's Imperial Theatre was half-empty for the first public performances, prompting producers to pull the plug.
