‘All’ goes down to nothing

Dame Edna-Michael Feinstein production to close early

“All About Me,” the Broadway mash-up of Dame Edna and Michael Feinstein, will shutter April 4, more than three months before its limited run was skedded to close.

Production never caught on at the box office and earned a mixed bag of reviews when it opened, March 18. Last week grosses for the show rose a bit to $216,425, but attendance was a mere 41% of capacity.

The production has so far brought in about $1.1 million in its five weeks on the boards. Show closes at what is likely a total loss of its $3 million capitalization cost.

With the recently announced closing of “The Miracle Worker” and now the shuttering of “All About Me,” a couple of Broadway houses will soon be vacant. At the moment, however, it seems unlikely that another production could mobilize quickly enough to get up and running before the April 29 cutoff date for Tony eligibility for the 2009-10 season.

“All About Me” was originally skedded to play until July 18.
