It’s curtains for Curtains, Top Girls fall, and this is the last Sunday for Sunday in the Park with George. All three of these shows have their final Broadway performances today. Curtains announced its Broadway closing date months ago, Top Girls is finishing its scheduled Broadway engagement, and Sunday in the Park with George is finally closing after several extensions.
The new Broadway musical Glory Days, which opened last night, has sadly joined the exclusive club of Broadway shows that can claim both their opening and closing night as one in the same. This afternoon it was announced that its first official performance had also been its last, and that due to the bad reviews (as well as low advance sales), the producers have decided to close the musical immediately.
On a brighter note, tonight was the official Broadway opening of the Manhattan Theatre Club’s revival of Top Girls. The Caryl Churchill play is scheduled to play a limited run at Broadway’s Biltmore Theatre through June 22.
