Broadway Shows Are Struggling

broadway-shows-shutting-down.jpg

This makes us sad!

Several Broadway plays are closing early due to poor sales at the box office, weak reviews, or a combination of both.

Even shows with big names aren't attracting customers. Shows such as Elling starring Brendan Fraser, La Bete starring David Hyde Pierce, and A Life in the Theatre starring T.R. Knight and Patrick Stewart, are all shutting down early.

In fact, La Bete and A Life in the Theatre had less than half-filled theaters last week. And Elling was forced to close after just one week!

The show's co-star, Tony Award-winner Denis O'Hare tweeted his disappointment:

What a world what a world…..got to be on CBS for the parade and oh, they are shutting down the play. One door shut, another window opens.

So unfortunate!

David Hyde Pierce Talks About Coming Out And His Marriage

It took over twenty years for David Hyde Pierce and husband Brian Hargrove to go public with their relationship and now, two years after getting married in California (before the passing of Prop 8 ), David is opening up about coming out.

"It was very important to me never to pretend, never to hide. In 1985, my partner Brian and I were new in the business and were not comfortable letting people know that we were gay. We had separate apartments. We went about our business.

We met this lovely married couple down in the grocery store below the apartment building where we all stayed. A month later, we finally had the courage to come out and let them know that in fact we were a couple. They said, 'We knew when we saw you shopping.'"

He also talks about being bullied to come out and what it felt like to finally marry his longtime partner.

"It wasn't so much about being uncomfortable being gay, it was about being uncomfortable … Like the bully on the playground was pushing your face in the dirt saying, 'Say it, say it, say it.

"[Getting married], I felt transformed … We'd been together 26 years when we were legally allowed to get married in California. We went and did it, and we both agree it had a power, an importance to us in our lives that we can't really put into words, but that is totally palpable and intrinsic to who we are."

Very inspiring. Congrats on having such a long and happy relationship!
