THE HEIDI CHRONICLES, Starring Elisabeth Moss, to Close Early on Broadway

The New York Times writes that Broadway's first revival of Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning Wendy Wasserstein's The Heidi Chronicles, starring Elisabeth Moss, Jason Biggs and Bryce Pinkham, will close early on May 3, 2015.

THE HEIDI CHRONICLES opened on March 19, 2015, at the Music Box Theatre (239 West 45th Street) and was originally set to run through August 9.

Producer Jeffrey Richards told the Times: "We were very well reviewed, and the performances were remarkable, but people didn't come to see it. Whether it was how crazy busy it was at this time of year or the consumer being asked to choose between so many shows, 'Heidi Chronicles' was not at the top of their list."

THE HEIDI CHRONICLES was unable to recoup the $3.5-4 million it took to mount the production. The play had grossed $2,565,125 as of Sunday, with just $311,933 taken in last week.

The show stars Golden Globe-winner and six-time Emmy Award-nominee Elisabeth Moss in the title role, with Emmy nominee Jason Biggs and Tony nominee Bryce Pinkham co-starring. Ali Ahn plays the role of Susan Johnston, Leighton Bryan takes on the roles of Jill/Debbie/Lisa, Tracee Chimo (Lips Together, Teeth Apart, "Orange Is The New Black," Bad Jews) plays the roles of Fran/Molly/Betsy/April, Elise Kibler appears as Becky/Clara/Denise, and Andy Truschinski stars as Chris Boxer/Mark/Waiter/Ray.

Tony Award-winner Pam MacKinnon (Edward Albee's A Delicate Balance, Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Clybourne Park) directs. The creative team includes scenic design by John Lee Beatty, costume design byJessica Pabst, lighting design by Japhy Weideman, sound design by Jill BC Du Boff, projection design by Peter Nigrini, hair and make-up design by Leah J. Loukas, and casting by Daniel Swee.

THE HEIDI CHRONICLES is the poignant coming-of-age story of three iconic decades of American culture: the 60s, 70s, and 80s. Through Heidi Holland, now a successful art historian, Wendy Wasserstein looks back on the promises of a generation in the Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning work that established her voice in the canon of quintessential theater forever. In its first Broadway revival, a bold reimagining led by Tony Award-winning director Pam MacKinnon, The Heidi Chronicles charts 19 characters through 13 scenes in 3 decades and 4 cities, as three unlikely friends come to realize that the fight for what you believe in can bring you a long way... maybe.
