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.
