US financial meltdown hits canine thesps hard
Crisis bites Broadway Chihuahua
The far-reaching effects of the US financial crisis are starkly demonstrated by the impending ejection onto New York's mean streets of a Chihuahua named Chico - canine star of the theatrical adaptation of Legally Blonde.
The show will close on 19 October after its 595th performance, Bloomberg reports. It's one of three to announce the final curtain in the past three weeks, with [title of show] and Xanadu also hit by a dramtic fall in ticket sales. Both of these will lose money, although the final profit/loss account for Legally Blonde has yet to be tallied.
Quite how the crunch affects the prospects for Spider-Man - The Musical! remains to be seen, although the producers shouldn't have any trouble finding a vacant theatre for the intented 2009 debut of the eight-legged musical. ®
They made a theatrical adaptation of 'Legally Blonde', and are blaming its failure to turn a profit on the financial crisis?
Here's a thought: Your show failed to sell tickets because it's a crap adaptation of a crap film.
Paris, 'coz even she would have figured putting that tripe on stage was a bad idea.
Haha. You fool. Your childish theories of economics have no place in a world funded by money guaranteed by the "full faith and trust of the US government".
[title of show]
lol at all those people picking up on [title of show].
Don't you just love it when people are so quick to criticise they don't bother to check the facts first?
Paris, because even she is smarter.
