Rosie shuts down her Broadway show

NEW YORK, Jan. 14 (UPI) -- TV personality Rosie O'Donnell announced Wednesday she will close down the Broadway musical she produced at what is believed to be a $10-million personal loss.

"Taboo," a show about club life in London in the 1980s, has music by British entertainer Boy George and a book by American playwright Charles Busch and features Boy George in a starring role. It opened at the Plymouth Theater last Nov. 13 to mostly negative reviews and has been struggling for survival ever since. The show is scheduled to close Feb. 8.

O'Donnell, who personally bankrolled the show, first saw it in London and was determined to bring it to Broadway in the belief it would be a big hit with American audiences. In announcing the closing, she said she had "no regrets," noting that the show had a four-months run despite its difficulties.
