Spring Awakening Falls In Winter

I knew it wasn't going to last that much longer but it still hurts.
Spring Awakening will close on Broadway on January 18 2009, having played 859 performances and 29 previews and sadly, won't last long enough to see another spring. Then again, 2 years isn't bad for a show a lot of people thought wouldn't last until its first spring.

I had been thinking about seeing the show again especially with the new cast including Hunter Parrish (Weeds) who got good reviews when the papers re-reviewed the show recently, but now I think I REALLY have to go see it again.

Still, it's a little sad.

Man, I know there's a bad economy but shows have always slowed down in the fall, but there still seems like an unusual amount of closings or closing announcements recently. [title of show], Xanadu, Hairspray, Spamalot, Legally Blonde, Rent, A Chorus Line, Curtains. Now Spring Awakening. And yet The Phantom of the Opera lives on. WTF people?

I'm going to see it on Broadway in November, and I'm so glad I am. Really looking forward to seeing Hunter Parrish, but very sad that the show is closing already. Damn this economy.
