Broadway's 'How to Succeed in Business' to close
Nick Jonas tried hard but couldn't keep Broadway's "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" in business.
Producers of the musical said Tuesday they'll pull the plug on the musical after several months of lackluster box office revenue. Its final performance will be May 20.
When it closes, the revival will have played just over 500 performances since it opened in February 2011. It quickly recouped its $9 million initial investment that December, thanks to its then-star Daniel Radcliffe.
Jonas took over the lead in January and had committed to staying until at least July 1, but ticket sales took a noticeable hit. Last week, the box office took in just US$368,000 out of a potential gross of $1.4 million.
