NEW YORK (AP) — The honeymoon between "Honeymoon in Vegas" and Broadway is over. Even Elvis couldn't save them.

Producers said Tuesday that the musical starring Tony Danza, Rob McClure and Brynn O'Malley will close Sunday after good reviews but dismal box office receipts.

The show was adapted from a 1992 movie starring James Caan, Nicolas Cage and Sarah Jessica Parker. It has music by Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown and tells the story of a reluctant groom whose bride-to-be is courted by a Vegas wise guy. One of the highlights is a troupe of glittery flying Elvises.

The show has been limping along ever since it opened in January. It never took in more than $500,000 despite having a $1.1 million potential and lately only half-filled the Nederlander Theatre.
