Two-Time Tony Award Winner Tootsie To Close

TootsieI can't remember the last time I was this upset about a show closing. Yes I can. It was 2008, and it was announced that my favorite show of all time, Rent, was closing after a run of twelve years. By the way, not only was it my favorite show of all time, but I saw it over twenty-five times.

Now here we are eleven years later, and another favorite of mine is closing. Tootsie, will play it's final performance at the Marquis Theatre on January 5, 2020. When it closes, it will have played a total of twenty-five previews, and two hundred and ninety-three performances.

Now while I didn't see the show twenty-five times, it is by far one of the funniest Broadway shows that I have seen in years. The truth is,that while the show got some of the best reviews of last season, it just wasn't a hit at the box office.

I mean let's face it. Not every show can be a blockbuster like Hamilton or The Lion King. Then there are shows like Beetlejuice, which I also loved by the way, that didn't get the greatest reviews, but is still selling well. That's just business I guess. Doesn't mean that I have to like it. Until next time theatre fans.
