Originally adapted for the stage in 1951 starring an unknown Audrey Hepburn, the musical is based on the 1944 novel by Colette about a free-spirited girl in Paris who falls in love with a wealthy playboy.

But don't worry, a national tour is in works for the revival in the 2016-17 season! Yayyy!

It was also announced that Broadway musical The Visit has a set closing date for June 14!

The dark musical by the Chicago songwriting team of Kander and Ebb was nominated for five Tonys, but walked away empty handed!

It's always sad to see a show close, but as they say — that's show business!
