It opened last Thursday (3/7). They played 11 previews and 5 performances before announcing closing. Either they were woefully under-capitalized, or they have 0 advance sales. Or both. They have a good press agent, and a good ad/marketing agency, and Richard Frankel is listed as an Executive producer. So the team is pretty good.

Except for the established off Broadway not for profits (Roundabout, MTC, The Public, The Vineyard, etc), reviews of commercial off Broadway shows seldom come out in a timely fashion. There just isnt enough space in newspapers etc these days. Online I can in a quick search only find 3 blog/website reviews (Theatre Pizzazz, Broadway World). Nothing from a 'major' critical source.

Seems like both Westside venues will be dark again soon, as THE OTHER JOSH COHEN, which I enjoyed immensely, has posted final weeks as well. Commercial off Broadway is in a very tough place.
