(AP) NEW YORK - There’ll be no more breakfast on Broadway.
Producers of the latest stage adaptation of Truman Capote’s classic 1958 story "Breakfast at Tiffany’s" said Monday they will close the show after Sunday’s matinee.
It will have played 17 preview and 38 regular performances. It joins "The Anarchist" by David Mamet and "The Performers," a play set in the porn industry, with quick exits on Broadway this season.
Starring Emilia Clarke of HBO’s "Game of Thrones" as the doomed eccentric party girl Holly Golightly, "Breakfast at Tiffany’s" opened to poor reviews and weak box office grosses.
For the week ending April 7, the show managed to take in just $337,621, or 38 percent of its $896,290 potential. The theater was also half full.
