Sorry, Vanessa Hudgens! Broadway Musical Gigi Will Close Later This Month — But It Might Not All Be Bad News!
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!
