QUICK TAKES

June 21, 2008|Lynne Heffley

"A Catered Affair" will be closing on Broadway. The Harvey Fierstein-John Bucchino musical, based on the 1956 motion picture written by Gore Vidal and on Paddy Chayefsky's original teleplay, will end at the Walter Kerr Theatre on July 27 after 27 previews and 116 regular performances.

The show, whose original cast recording is now available on the PS Classics label, premiered at San Diego's Old Globe Theatre in October 2007 before its New York run.

It received three 2008 Tony Award nominations, but no wins, for performances by lead actors Tom Wopat and Faith Prince and for Jonathan Tunick's original orchestrations.
