Two new musicals from last season have just posted their closing notices for August 18th, The Cher Show and King Kong.
I guess even giving The Cher Show a major Tony Award still was not enough to help it at the box office. At least it’ll be launching a national tour in Rochester, New York next October.July 3, 2019 at 3:51 pm #1202961521

Here’s an interesting business article on how much money is being lost with the crop of shows closing this summer. Certainly shows close and lose money every year, but this summer has seen a spike. Many shows had poor reviews and ticket sales yet chose to stay open and all are throwing in the towel together now that the summer season is winding down. At any rate, over $100 million is being lost. Some of these shows may return a small portion of the capitalization to their investors, but I would not be surprised if something like King Kong actually lost more than its initial investment because it ran so many weeks at what I would have to imagine is a loss.July 15, 2019 at 11:13 am #1202975914
