Producers Andrew Asnes and Timothy Schmidt said the tough economy contributed to the premature closing, and that presenters around the country have expressed interest in a regional life for the work. The musical got mixed reviews.
The cast features Courtney Balan ([title of show], Cry Baby), Chris Hoch (La Cage Aux Folles, Shrek), David Josefsberg (The Wedding Singer, Grease!) and Joanna Young (The Drowsy Chaperone, Grease!) with Natalie Charle Ellis (9 to 5 tour) and Spencer Moses (Guys and Dolls).
Rated P for Parenthood, according to producers, features "a versatile cast of four takes the audience through the ups and downs of childrearing — from the sublime to the ridiculous — in a series of comic and musical vignettes in under 90 minutes."
Westside Theatre is at 407 W. 43rd St. Tickets are $89.50 and can be purchased through Telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200.
