Lucy Prebble’s Enron, the multimedia theatrical extravaganza about the famous corporate financial disaster, will close on Sunday, May 9, 2010. The show, which is a hit on London’s West End, will have played just 22 preview and 15 regular performances at the time of closing.
Although Enron received four 2010 Tony Award nominations, it failed to be cited in the important Best Play race. The show received wildly mixed reviews when it opened on Sunday, April 25 and has been struggling at the box office. In the week ending May 2, the show grossed just $234,196, according to The Broadway League.
Tony Award winner Norbert Leo Butz stars as Enron CEO Jeffrey Skilling, with Marin Mazzie, Gregory Itzin (24) and Stephen Kunken, a 2010 Tony nominee for his performance, also featured as higher-ups in the company. Rupert Goold directs.
