Oh how bad I feel for the company members.
Playbill.com reports that the producers of A Tale of Two Cities have announced a new closing date for the short-lived Broadway production. Previously reported to shutter on November 16th, the Jill Santoriello musical will now close November 9th, just two days after tonight's performance.
This puts the total Broadway performance count for the Dickens-based historical romance at 60 regular performances and 33 previews.
And to add salt to the wound, the producers felt it necessary to fill the company in through telephone calls just a couple of hours before curtain call for tonight's performance.
