Touring production to close in Hershey.
The national touring production of “Doctor Dolittle” will shutter Sunday in Hershey, Penn.
The $3 million tuner, starring Tom Hewitt as the doc who talks to animals, was booked through June and skedded to head to Chicago after Hershey.
In a statement, producer Nick Scandalios of Nederlander Presentations said, “While we are extremely proud of ‘Doctor Dolittle’ onstage, it simply is not translating to ticket sales and finding its audience.”
