Bad news on Broadway!

After getting no love at the Tonys this year, it's been announced that the revival of Gigi will give its final performance on June 21!

The Vanessa Hudgens-led production officially opened on April 8 at the Neil Simon Theatre. At the time of closing, Gigi will have played 20 previews and 86 regular performances.

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!

An 11-Year-Old Gave Arguably The Best Performance At The Tony Awards, But Watch Her Before Fun Home Made It Big HERE!

Yaaaaaaaas queen!

By now you've probably heard that Fun Home walked away as the clear winner from Sunday night's Tony Awards with five awards.

And although she didn't win the award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical, Sydney Lucas may have actually stolen the show.

That's because the 11-year-old managed to best practically all of her elders to give a powerhouse performance of Ring of Keys, and we were just blown away by her talent.

But as if being able to carry a song at age 11 isn't impressive enough, we just found footage of Syndey singing the same song back in 2012 at the Public Theater Block Party before the award-winning musical made it big!

Ch-ch-check out Syndey's just-as-impressive performance from three years ago (below)!!!
