By Adam Hetrick
December 1, 2009
Hollywood exits Broadway this week as two Chicago cops, a forlorn King, an entitled rich girl and a troubled student and her college professor tread the boards for the last time. Off-Broadway bids farewell to a comedy about conjoined twins finding love and an evening of macabre tales from the U.K.
Here's Playbill.com's weekly "Last Chance" reminder to catch Broadway, Off-Broadway and world-premiere productions before they close.
