We're sad to hear that Pedro Almodovar's Broadway adaptation of Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown will be closing on Jan 2.
The play will be shutting down three weeks early, after a total of 30 previews and 69 performances.
Guess Pedro's top-notch filmmaking skills didn't translate well to the stage.
We give you credit for trying. Looking forward to more of your wonderful films!

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.

The fashion gods are smiling down on us today!
JWoww's Filthy Couture is not, we repeat, NOT shutting down.
The busty Jersey Shore star tweeted the glorious news on Wednesday afternoon:
clear things up! I'm designing a new fall line but holding it off for something very exciting! + my management is getting my line in stores. Online sales have stopped for these 2 reasons. Lol these stories r hysterical
And there you have it.
Wonder what this "exciting" thing is that's forced Jenni to put her filth on hold???
