Next Fall Shutting Down


Next Fall's producers announced yesterday that the play — a critically acclaimed Off Broadway transfer about a gay couple that's half far-right Christian — will close July 4, with 26 previews and 132 regular performances to its name. The show had long been underperforming commercially, and recently missed out on a Tonys boost when it was shut out of both the Best Play and Best Direction of a Play categories at this year's awards. Maybe if producer Elton John were in the play? [ArtsBeat/NYT]
