FUNNY GIRL Postpones LA and Broadway Engagement Owing to Economy

FUNNY GIRL POSTPONES LOS ANGELES AND BROADWAY ENGAGEMENTS

FUNNY GIRL, which was recently announced to return to Broadway in April 2012 following an engagement at Center Theatre Group/Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles, has been postponed.

{module ad_left_body}Speaking on behalf of the FUNNY GIRL producing team, Bob Boyett said “We have made the extremely difficult decision today to postpone our production of Funny Girl. Given the current economic climate, many Broadway producing investors have found it impossible to maintain their standard level of financial commitment. Our desire to produce Funny Girl on the scale it deserves required a capitalization of $12 million making it one of the most expensive revivals in Broadway history.” 

Boyett continued, “I am deeply saddened by this decision, but I, along with the finest group of co-producers I have ever had the pleasure to work with, Sonia Friedman, Jean Doumanian, Stacey Mindich and Tim Levy, determined that this was not the right time to bring Funny Girl to the stage.”
