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!

Brendan Fraser On Broadway!

brendan fraser performs on broadway

Looks like Brendan Fraser has found a perfect match in this role!

Check out the photos (below) of Fraser performing in the opening night production of Furry Vengeance Elling at Broadway's Ethel Barrymore Theatre in NYC.

We've had mixed feelings about Fraser's career choices over the years, but we're thinking this was the role he was always meant to play!

We're happy for you, Brendan! Good luck, bb!

Are U innerested in seeing Brendan Fraser perform on Broadway?

Brendan Fraser Headed To Broadway

wenn2877856bf.jpg

Seriously?

Brendan Fraser will make his Broadway debut in the fall playing the role of Kjell in the Barrymore Theatre's production of Elling.

A drama adapted from the 2001 Norwegian movie, the story is about a pair of mental institution inmates who are released and Fraser's character is described as "a big, shaggy lump of a man who, at 40, is desperate to lose his virginity."

He'll star opposite Jennifer Coolidge and Denis O'Hare in the show, which got pretty good reviews during its London run.

Anything is better than Furry Vengeance!
