Spring cleaning comes early for some Broadway theatres as several shows close to make way for the next wave of Broadway-bound productions.
The first Broadway spectacular to close in 2012 was Hugh Jackman's one-man show that finished its successful run on New Year's Day. Closing on January 8th are the Tony Award-winning Billy Elliot and newcomer Lysistrata Jones. Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin, both Tony winners for the original production of Evita, will take final bows for their special engagement on January 13.
The wildly acclaimed revival of Stephen Sondheim's Follies will conclude its extended Broadway run on January 22. The Mountaintop culminates on January 22 as well with the Relatively Speaking trilogy wrapping up January 29, 2012.
Not to worry, though. A number of shows are slated to open as we begin the annual sprint toward the Tony Awards.
