The recent surprising news that Tony-winner Memphis will be closing on August 5 (after a healthy run, though without an official recoupment announcement) highlighted the fact that this has been a particularly brutal summer on Broadway. In fact, I’m finding it hard to keep track of who is still standing–or kick-ball-changing–on the Great White Way. And if you have a vacation to New York planned, you may be similarly at sea about what will still be around to see or not to see.
[Special note: For the holiday week next week, most Broadway shows are changing up their schedulesto avoid competing with fireworks. The added/rearranged shows are a great time to pick up last minute tickets.]
