This is very upsetting news. The 2007 Tony-winning ( 8 of them!) Broadway Musical, Spring Awakening will be closing. The show is scheduled to close on January 18th of next year. Noooo! This is currently my favorite show on Broadway! When Legally Blonde announced it was closing...I got it. That sounded like a pretty rational decision. But then Spamalot announced its identical fate (Spamalot is also scheduled to close January 18th.) Why are all of these seemingly successful shows closing? It's simple. With the bad economy, a lot of these shows can't support themselves. Spring Awakening was funded as a private project, therefore, they just don't have the financial support needed to stay open. Ahhh! Hurry and go see it! Buy a million tickets! Help keep my show open!
