Broadway Shows Announce Closing Dates for December and January

It's the end of the year, and in New York's theater circles, that can only mean one thing: the inevitable closing of numerous shows that can't last the city's winter downturn.

To be fair, quite a few of the shows that will close this month and next were limited runs, but some, like the revival of Private Lives starring Paul Gross and Kim Cattrall, are closing earlier than previously announced. (One has to wonder: What will happen to all of those live goldfish used in the set once the show closes?) 

This weekend, the limited engagement of David Ives' saucy Venus in Fur will wrap up before transferring to the Lyceum for an extension later in the season. The Addams Family musical, which impressed much of the theater community with its staying power, will end its run on New Year's eve, as will Private Lives. One day later, Hugh Jackman bids a fond "Cheers, mate" to Broadway (for the time being) as his sell-out one-man show ends its 10-week run after setting records at the Broadhurst theater. Billy Elliott, which was the hottest ticket on Broadway just a few years ago, will close on January 8, and the evening of songs with Mandy Patinkin and Patti LuPone will close on January 13. January 22 will bid adieu to both The Mountaintop, starring Samuel L. Jackson as Martin Luther King and Angela Bassett as a hotel maid who challenges him, and to the revival of Follies starring Bernadette Peters, Jan Maxwell, Ron Raines and Danny Burstein.
