to Close Off-Broadway

The Temperamentals, the off-Broadway show about five closeted men who formed the pre-Stonewall gay rights group the Mattachine Society, is scheduled to close at the end of May after three months of performances.

Written by Jon Marans and directed by Jonathan Silverstein and starring Ugly Betty's Michael Urie (pictured at right), the show opened to strong reviews on February 28 and snagged a Lucille Lortel Award for Best Actor for Urie.

But, according to The New York Times, the show occasionally had trouble filling its 199-seat house, despite two successful runs at smaller houses in 2009.

"We began our wonderful journey in April 2009 and are very grateful for the awards, honors, nominations and recognition that we have received and are receiving the end of this theater season," the show's producers, Daryl Roth and Stacy Shane, said in a statement. "We would like to leave on a high note."
