‘[title of show]’ to close on Oct. 12

Bowen, Bell eligible for lead actor Tony noms

Broadway tuner “[title of show]” will shutter Oct. 12. Meanwhile, co-creators and stars Jeff Bowen and Hunter Bell have been ruled eligible for lead actor noms.

Four-actor meta-musical about the creation of a tuner opened on the Rialto in July. Producers were hoping the show would build over time from its slow summer start to stronger sales, but weekly box office never topped the $200,000 mark. Show grossed $107,591 for the week ended Sept. 15, playing to 30% capacity.

Tuner originated at the New York Musical Theater Fest in 2004 and had a popular Off Broadway run at the Vineyard in 2006. It was the only Broadway production of the season to open before the fall onslaught, which officially began with the Sept. 18 opening of “A Tale of Two Cities.”

In the first ruling of the season by the Tony Award Administration Committee, which determines award eligibility when it differentiates from the Rialto norm, Bowen and Bell will be eligible for lead actor noms.

In most cases, those billed above the title are the ones considered lead thesps, with all others falling into featured slots.

The Tony Administration Committee will meet three more times over the season to determine eligibility of future offerings.
