Movin' Out, the Billy Joel-Twyla Tharp dance musical, is a few weeks away said a spokesperson for the show. The musical which opened on Broadway's Richard Rodgers Oct. 24, 2002, under the auspices of James L. Nederlander, Hal Luftig, Scott E. Nederlander, Terry Allen Kramer, Clear Channel Entertainment and Emanuel Azenberg. The show was capitalized at $10 million.
The Hugh Jackman Broadway vehicle The Boy From Oz is set to close at the Imperial Theatre, Sept. 12 — when Jackman and the original cast members' one-year contracts expire. However, the $9 million staging of the Australian-born musical, produced by Ben Gannon and Robert Fox, is expecting to earn back its money before closing, a spokesperson confirmed.
The press representative also confirmed another show expected to recoup before its final performance — slated for Jan. 2, 2005 — will be the revival of 42nd Street which opened at the Ford Center for the Performing Arts May 2, 2001. The production is presented by Dodger Theatricals, Joop Van Den Ende and Stage Holding.
