Unhappy Producer Shutters Fla. Show

Brian C. Smith, producer-director of the for-profit Off Broadway on East 26th Street Theater, closed the comedy “What’s Wrong With This Picture?” in mid-run claiming he was dissatisfied with the production, despite healthy advance and single ticket sales.

It earned mixed-to-positive notices, including an endorsement from the region’s largest daily, The Miami Herald, and had $8,000 in paid reservations. “I just didn’t see what I wanted to see up on stage,” Smith said.

Actress Julie Miller is to reprise of her solo show “Marilyn. . . In Her Own Words,” which appeared at the theater for four months last fall, for an open-end booking beginning Jan. 18.
