The Broadway revival of "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" will end its run at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre in New York on May 20, organizers announced this week. The musical, which currently stars pop singer Nick Jonas, will have played 473 regular performances by the time it closes.
"How to Succeed" has been a profitable production, recouping its initial $9-million investment in December, according to organizers. But the musical recently has seen its box-office fortunes decline.
The show only grossed $367,605 in the most recent week, representing its smallest weekly box-office gross to date. Attendance also fell below 50% capacity for the first time.
Jonas joined the production in late January in the role of J. Pierrepont Finch. The role was originated in this revival by Daniel Radcliffe, who was followed briefly by Darren Criss.
