ALL ABOUT ME to Close April 4

Reported first earlier today by BroadwayWorld.com's scoopster, Rialto Chatter, it's now been confirmed that the show will indeed close on April 4, 2010. The show has been struggling at the box office since it opened. The show will have played 27 previews and 20 regular performances.

News first eeked out earlier today when Telecharge.com, the show's official ticketing outlet, notified ticket-holders that future performances were cancelled and they began selling tickets only through April 4, uncharacteristic of a new Broadway production that just opened. Tickets are usually available for purchase months out.

ALL ABOUT ME opened at the new Henry Miller's Theatre on March 18, 2010. The show follows a tradition of unique entertainment, joining shows such as: At the Drop of a Hat (1959) starring the comedy team of Michael Flanders and Donald Swann; An Evening with Mike Nichols and Elaine May (1960) directed by Arthur Penn; An Evening with Yves Montand (1961); Beyond the Fringe (1962), the British Revue starring Alan Bennett; Wait a Minim! (1966), the hit revue with eight performers from South Africa; Bob and Ray-The Two and Only (1970) starring the popular radio comics Bob Elliott and Ray Goulding; Words and Music (1974) a revue featuring the songs of Sammy Cahn; Jackie Mason: Politically Incorrect (1994), and Jackie Mason's Much Ado about Everything (1999).

ALL ABOUT ME starring Dame Edna and Michael Feinstein was written by Christopher Durang, Barry Humphries and Michael Feinstein. This is Dame Edna's third return to Broadway. Michael Feinstein last appeared on Broadway in 1990.

ALL ABOUT ME is produced by Jeffrey Richards and Jerry Frankel. Direction is by Casey Nicholaw. For more information, visit www.allaboutmebroadway.com.
