Got tickets to the third week of "Jersey Boys" performances at the Murat? Well, bad news: There isn't going to be a third week.

The national tour of the Broadway hit, returning to Indy in January, has lopped a week off of its planned Jan. 9-27 run here. Now it will be exiting on the 20th "due to tour scheduling," according to Broadway in Indianapolis Director of Public Relations Matthew Porter.

Those with tickets for Jan. 22-27should revisit their point of purchase to try to reschedule. If not, there will be refunds.

If you find yourself with a suddenly open weekend and still have a desire for musical theater, keep in mind that  "A Little Night Music" opens at the Indiana Repertory Theatre on the 22nd.

Your thoughts?

  • "Night Music" is a great idea.
    Although poles apart from "Jersey Boys", Sondheim's "A Little Night Music" is one of his best. The songs are mesmerizing and includes the iconic "Send in the Clowns." I always thought that was an odd song until I saw how it makes perfect sense in the play. The action and dialog can be really clever and funny at times. The show was recently done in NYC with Angela Lansbury and Catherine Zeta-Jones in the cast. Here in Indy we'll be treated to the great Sylvia McNair - 4 time Grammy Nominee and 2-time winner! Don't miss it.
  • Get Outta Here!
    I think it's sad that a national touring Broadway show has to shorten it's tour in Indy for obviously lack of ticket sales. I saw this show in Louisville almost two years ago - and it was amazing. I was planning on attending a show here, too. However, with the economy, lack of discretionary income, the holidays - it doesn't surprise me - just sad.

  1. How is the private developer going to repay the bonds. Is this going to be a toll road?

  2. As well as a Portillio'S!!!!!!

  3. A Lou Malnati's would be awesome!!!!!!!!

  4. We aren't broke. We just aren't willing to raise revenues for this that we should be raising them.

  5. OK. now that the state is taking illegal immigrants, willing or not. There is a major concern that needs to be addressed. First: School starts here in 3 weeks in most parts of the country and probably in Indiana. So is the state going to vaccinate these kids before they intermingle with our kids in school? The problem we are going to have here in the US and possibly in Indiana is that some of these kids could be carrying health issues or diseases that are pretty much eradicated in the US. This could cause a major health issue in the US. Second: Who is going to pay for this building disaster? We are flat out broke….. Down here in Texas, we have 14 counties that have been so swamped with kids, (numerous thousands of them), they are on the verge of financial collapse. Now this is happening in counties in New Mexico, Arizona and California. The system is massively overloaded. Swine flu has started back up in San Antonio since they have nearly 2500 kids that have been placed there and lice is rampant. Not to be insensitive, but we need to stop this madness. I find it amazing that we cannot take care of our veterans and yet give carte blanche to illegals entering the country. Recently an article mentioned that these kids and teenagers can get on planes without TSA screening? What? What the Hell???? Keep in mind this about protecting our national sovereignty as a nation and also living under the rule of law. Not only the terrorist threat that can come over the border. This is a deliberate and irresponsible and illegal act from administration ignoring the constitutional duty of protecting the borders and also upholding the supreme law of the land. This is a classic Cloward and Piven strategy to overload the system until it collapses.
