‘Mother’ calls it quits

Falco, Blethyn wave buh-bye to B'way

” ‘Night Mother” calls it quits Jan. 9.

Producers of the current revival of Marsha Norman’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play are shuttering the show two months early. They had originally announced a 19-week engagement. Norman’s two-hander opened Nov. 14 with Edie Falco and Brenda Blethyn in the roles of a daughter and mother. It will have played 91 performances and 26 previews. The original Broadway production of ” ‘Night Mother” opened in 1983 and ran for 388 perfs.

Other early 2005 closings include “Bombay Dreams,” “42nd Street,” “Golda’s Balcony,” “Laugh Whore” and “Whoopi.” Six is a lot for most months, but a fairly typical number for January when there are fewer tourists in town.
