Brendan Fraser waited his whole life to appear on Broadway. He got his wish last Sunday and by this Sunday it will be over. His play, Elling, about two released mental patients in Norway received decent reviews but was playing to empty houses this week and losing money fast. So, it will close after just nine performances.
Also closing really early is Patrick Stewart's play which also starred TR Knight. No one was bothering to show up at their play either. I think sometimes people think that just be throwing any name up on the marquee that you will sell it out. I think this is true for a day or two, but if the play is not good then people will stay away. Oh, unless it is Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig and they could probably say anything and people will still come.
