Rocky Horror Show and The Women closing on Broadway

Variety reports that a number of Broadway shows--including the omnisexual romp The Rocky Horror Show and the gay cult fave The Women as well as By Jeeves; Kiss Me, Kate; Dance of Death; Hedda Gabler; and Thou Shalt Not--will close at year's end or shortly thereafter. Losing that many shows means that just three plays--The Producers, The Lion King, and Mamma Mia!--could account for one third of Broadway's total gross. One bit of hope for the troubled Great White Way may come from Season of Savings, a program from the League of American Theaters and Producers wherein 14 shows will offer discount tickets during the first quarter of 2002.

What makes Mamma Mia! and The Women so gay? And whatever it is, is it good?
