News   Last Sunday in June, Tolins' Take on "Gay Play" Genre, Will Close July 6 The Last Sunday in June, Jonathan Tolins' seriocomic pulse-taking of the "Will and Grace"-era gay community, will end its commercial Off-Broadway run July 6.

Ted Snowdon, producer of the play announced June 18 he was shuttering the show. "It was one of the hardest decisions I had to make," Snowdon said in a statement, "but it was not economically viable to keep the show running through the summer.  This witty and challenging play has been near and dear to my heart since I first read it in 1999.  I am very grateful to The Genesius Guild for helping with its first incarnation and to The Rattlestick Theatre where we enjoyed a six week sold-out run this past winter before moving to The Century Center in April.  I am very proud of what we accomplished.  Everyone involved with this production has been just as passionate about Jon's play as I." When The Last Sunday in June closes, it will have played eight previews performances and 102 regular performances.  The show is now playing at The Century Center (111 East 15th Street, just off Union Square).  Tickets may be purchased by calling (212) 239-6200 or by visiting www.lastsundayinjune.com.

As previously reported by Playbill On-Line, the first regional production of the play starts June 20 at The Caldwell Theatre in Boca Raton, FL. For more information visit www.caldwelltheatre.com.
