News   45 Bleecker Street Theatre Suddenly Closes Doors; Deep Throat Shutters
 
Off-Broadway's 45 Bleecker Street Theatre, most recently the home of The Deep Throat Sex Scandal and Perfect Harmony,  among others, has abruptly shut its doors.

According to the theatre's official website, "Theatre is temporarily closed. Like many New Yorkers, we are in dispute with our Landlord. Due to litigation we have no comment at this time. Further information will be posted as it becomes available." Because of the landlord dispute, David Bertolino's Deep Throat Sex Scandal has ended its run. The show's last performance was Oct. 12. "Cast and crew members arrived for the Wednesday evening performance to find themselves locked out of the theater," according to a press statement. "At this point, the company cannot gain access to the set, costumes, props, or audio-visual equipment (as well as actors’ personal property), so a move to another theater is impossible at this time."

Bleecker Street Theatre manager Elle Sunman told the New York Times, "Right now the entire theater is shutdown, and all of our shows were canceled for Wednesday night and again for tonight. We’re really hoping to reopen immediately, as soon as Friday, but I can’t say anything more because of the gravity of the case. We hope to say something more soon about how we’re looking to survive this hurdle."

45 Bleecker is located in Manhattan at 45 Bleecker Street.
