No More Cheering: ‘Lysistrata Jones’ to Close Sunday

The producers of the new Douglas Carter Beane musical, Lysistrata Jones, have announced that its last performance will be Sunday.

When it closes, the show that put a modern-day spin to a Aristophanes’ Greek classic, will have played 34 previews and 30 performances at the Walter Kerr Theatre.

It was announced that last week, while most other shows – notably Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark – were raking in the holiday dough, Jones earned just $326,500 over nine performances.

I hate anytime a show closes early, particularly an original musical. But, as I said in my review, the show just wasn’t good. Even after the fantastic performance Patti Murin gives, it couldn’t save the show for me.

Share.
