I was reading an article on People's web site about Xtina getting divorced and it included this paragraph...

Applegate, 34, whose credits include Married ... With Children and last year's Anchorman, is currently on Broadway in a revival of Sweet Charity, which will run until the end of this month.

Does this mean Sweet Charity will run until the end of the month, or is that when Xtina is done? I still haven't seen that show, and it would suck if it closed before the new year because Christmas in between jobs is hard enough on me already, haha.

Christina's leaving on Dec. 31. The show is selling tickets to mid Februrary, even though it will most likely close.

Someone else posted a thread that Charity was closing a few days back, but no link...I have heard anything or seen anything "official" on the board.

I would not put too much stock in it. The site usually will know as soon as such information about closings is out. Besides, there are too many rumors going around about the fate of the show and on a replacement for Christina. Wait and see I suppose.

If she's leaving in December, wouldn't you think they'd announce a replacement by the end of this week or something? I mean that person's going to need time to rehearse.

If they don't get a star, the show is done. Nuff said. The only way I'd get my lazy butt to see that show is if Idina stepped it. That would be so awesome (especially if she showed her butt. Man, I love Rent).

Idina most likely wouldn't step in. She has been quoted as saying that she'd rather create roles that replace someone, Aida being an exception to that.
"Last week I would've given a kidney to anyone in this office. I would've reached right into my stomach and pulled it out for them. But now, no. I don't have the relationship with these people that I thought I did. I hope they ask, so they can hear me say, "Uh, no, I only give my organs to my real friends. Go get yourself a monkey kidney." "I'm not offended by homosexuality. In the 60's, I made love to many, many women. Often outdoors... in the mud and the rain. And it's possible a man slipped in. There would be no way of knowing. " -The Office

then there's also that other little thing about Idina not being able to dance. before you jump down my throat, she's said herself its not her thing.

so thats out. honestly... end of the month unless she renews. another show has a put down a deposit on the theatre. its in the bag that the show will move or close. if moving was an option, it would only be able to be to a bigger venue and you'd need a bigger star to fill such a space. Britney's out - the Wieslers have no more tricks to pull out of their hats. I foresee a closing notice within the next few weeks. That or an extension till the first week of Feb at the absolute latest.

Ok, that was random. But yes, DancNdaMoonlite, I'm sure that would be fine, as long as it is the WORD "sex," and not a picture of it!

Christina,I believe is contracted to Dec 31. If no replacement is found I assume it will close on that date. If they find a replacement Christina is gonna stay til mid-Jan.

I don't see how they would stay open past Dec 31 if they don't find a replacement, or maybe extend Christina's contract.

It doesn't matter if she stays or not the show still has to be out by Feb. 5th. So The Wedding Singer can start loading in. Jujamcyn gave them a date they had to be out by.
