The Broadway revival of Hair is closing at the end of the month on June 27.

Sales started out strong when the show started back in March 2009, but have dropped considerably in the past few months.

But a national tour is lined up to begin in the fall starting in New Haven, Connecticut so you can catch it before it's gone!

Did U see Hair on Broadway?

Filed under: Broadway BabiesRicky Martin

At first, we thought this was kind of below him.

Then we thought about the last time Ricky Martin was on the top of the charts and then we got on board!

The newly-outed Menudo man will play Che on Broadway's first revival of Evita. Reprising her role from her acclaimed West End performance as Eva Peron will be Elena Roger. This will be her Broadway debut!

The show is expected to go up in 2012, or so the producers hope.

Think you'd like to see Ricky shake his bon-bon on Broadway?

The show that made Barbra Streisand famous, Funny Girl, is being revived on Broadway.

Bartlet Sher will direct the six week out-of-town tryout in late 2011 in preparation for a quick Broadway transfer later in the season.

Rights owner and producer Bob Boyett said:

"I don't have any other details, or anything on locations…Nothing is really pulled together except Bart Sher. There have been a few Hollywood types who have expressed interest…but we're also open to going with an unknown actress."

So, Lea Michele?!

Can't wait to find out who they cast as the lead!

Following in a long line of Broadway revivals coming to the Great White Way, it has just been announced that Annie will be coming back to Broadway in two years.

The Tony Award-winning musical originally debuted in 1977, but in 2012, it will be given a facelift from producer Arielle Tepper Madover, whose other revival credits include Hair and A Raisin in the Sun.

One generation bringing the next to see a classic! We bet it will do well, for a while!
