'Magic/Bird' to close on Broadway

May 1, 2012
KEYWORDS Broadway / magic/bird

Without any love shown in the Tony Award nominations this morning--and without significant traffic at the box office--the Broadway bro-mance "Magic/Bird" will play its last performance May 12. That's significantly less than the 244 performances that the producers' previous sports play, "Lombardi," racked up.

Would a stronger show have found an audience? Or was there little chance from the get-go for a play about two hard-working rivals on the basketball court.

Your thoughts?
