Item: New Broadway Musical Glory Days Closes After Opening Night. [Playbill] It's utterly preposterous that this show got this far, this quickly, thus probably very appropriate that it's biting the dust so soon. Of the producers, the Times' Brantley said in his review today, "they have done this little, hopeful show no favors by dragging it into a spotlight that invites close and unforgiving inspection.'' Also, that it's the "youngest-feeling show about being young ever to land on Broadway" and "the musical equivalent of a story for an introductory college fiction class." Though, I guess there is a bit of schadenfreude in seeing it go so soon. And no, I didn't see it.
