Well as much as I hate to say it my prediction has come true. It was just announced that the new musical Come Fly Away will play it's final performance on Broadway on Sunday September 5, 2010. When it closes it will have played a total of 26 previews and a 187 regular performances. Despite it's premature closing the show is still expected to launch a National Tour in Chicago in May 2011.
Now while I enjoyed the show I always thought it had a limited audience. When it first opened ticket sales we good. In fact just last month they put a new block of seats on sale thru January 11. However with no Tony wins and no big advance it was doomed. Another one bites the dust. Until next time theatre fans.
