Curtain down: 3 Broadway plays to close early
NEW YORK (AP) - A play about two recently released mental patients in Norway is the latest Broadway show ending its run early, joining a David Mamet valentine to the theater and a revival starring David Hyde Pierce.
"Elling," starring Denis O'Hare and Brendan Fraser, will close Sunday after 22 previews and nine regular performances. It made only about $145,000 during eight performances last week, well short of its $882,000 potential.
"La Bete," starring Mark Rylance, Joanna Lumley and Pierce, and "A Life in the Theatre," with Patrick Stewart and T.R. Knight, have also not done well financially this season.
Mamet's "Life" will close Sunday, well short of its original Jan. 2 intended end. And "La Bete" will close Jan. 9 after struggling through about 100 regular performances.
