Tony Snub Kills Desire Under the Elms


Following the Tonys' surprise failure to nominate Carla Gugino for Best Leading Actress for her performance in Desire Under the Elms, the show will close on May 24, five weeks early. Slightly better news: The producers of The Norman Conquests, which earned a nod for Best Revival of a Play, are in talks to extend the show an extra four weeks beyond its scheduled closing on July 24.
