"Die Fidelity"

Barbara Hoffman gives the full NY Post treatment to High Fidelity's posted closing notice.


'HIGH Fidelity," low turnout - which is why the producers of the $10 million Broadway musical announced yesterday that they're pulling the plug Sunday, scarcely a week after the show's Dec. 7 opening...

...[T]he young, single men who flocked to the film - the so-called "Spamalot" demographic - stayed away from the musical in droves.

According to the Playbill stats, in the week leading up to December 10, High Fidelity did 45% capacity in a 1,435-seat (at an average ticket price of $54.90).

Meanwhile, the Spring Awakening producers say "We do so have an advance, Riedel." The reviews have helped them double it. Now it's all up to word of mouth for them...

Good to see your comments on "Spring Awakening" I'm loving the show as well, and doing a six part interview series with the cast and creatives on Broadway Bullet.

We are calling the series, "Going Geeky on 'Spring Awakening'" and we even have a contest giving away 10 pairs of tickets with a meet-and-greet with the cast and creatives afterwards!

I just thought you might be interested.

Keep spreading the word on "Spring Awakening"! I really hope this is a big hit, it deserves it!
