Always Be Closing

The Oleanna producers, who made news just two weeks ago announcing a January 3 closing, must have looked at the latest numbers and said, in a matter befitting Mr. Mamet himself: fuck it.

Producer Jeffrey Finn announced today that the first-ever Broadway production of OLEANNA, the provocative drama by Pulitzer Prize winner David Mamet, will now complete its Broadway engagement this coming Sunday, December 6, 2009.
Just too "provocative," I guess.

Yes, that's this Sunday. As in: last 8 performances.
