Broadway shows set post-Tony exits

'Godspell,' 'Streetcar' plan to close

With the Tony Awards done for another year, Broadway’s summer has begun to shape up, with “Godspell” and “A Streetcar Named Desire” among the shows setting closing dates.

“Godspell” was shut out of the Tony noms, but its producer was hoping the show’s appearance on the Tonycast, including the cast performing familiar song “Day by Day” led by current topliner Corbin Bleu, would help bump up B.O. “Godspell” sales have generally fallen on the lower end of the Rialto spectrum. Last week the tuner pulled in about $155,000 and played to auds at just 46% of capacity; show is now set to shutter June 24.

“Streetcar,” the revival starring Blair Underwood, also went largely recognized at the Tonys, where the show was nominated for a single award for costume design. Production had previously announced it would extend to Aug. 19, but now has shifted back to its original closing date, July 22. A rep for the show said the production would use the extra downtime to prepare for a London production that’s in the works for the fall.

Also skedding a closing date is “Anything Goes,” the musical revival Tony winner from the 2010-11 season. The Roundabout Theater Company production had proven successful enough to have an extended life at the org’s Stephen Sondheim Theater, but sales have dwindled in recent weeks. Show, which opened in April 2011, will now shutter Aug. 5 ahead of a national tour that kicks off in Cleveland in October.
