‘Kiss Me’ goodnight

B'way revival closing Sunday

The Broadway revival of “Kiss Me, Kate” has posted a closing notice for Sunday. It will be the sixth legit show to exit the Great White Way this Sunday.

Earlier in the week, notices went up for “If You Ever Leave Me,” “The Rocky Horror Show,” “Stones in His Pockets” and “A Thousand Clowns.” “Blast!” had announced its closing, also Sunday, more than two weeks ago.

“Kiss Me, Kate,” which won the 2000 Tony for best revival of a musical, opened at the Martin Beck Theater on Nov. 18, 1999. It will have played 28 previews and 769 regular performances.

After the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the show grossed $84,766 for five performances on an adjusted gross potential of $518,864.

“Kate” had struggled at the box office for most of the summer. It took in $387,591 (gross potential: $815,592) for the week of Aug. 20-26, its weakest B.O. session for a full eight performances. Shortly thereafter, the show’s producers, Roger Berlind and Roger Horchow, announced the 1948 Cole Porter tuner would close Dec. 30. The new closing date was announced on Wednesday.
