NEW YORK, Dec. 29 (UPI) -- The Broadway revival of the musical "Ragtime" is set to close Sunday, the show's producers announced.
The new production of Terrence McNally, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty's musical will have played 28 preview and 57 regular performances at Manhattan's Neil Simon Theatre.
"While we're saddened and disappointed to announce that 'Ragtime' must close, bringing this beautiful and powerful production to Broadway has been a joyous experience," producer Kevin McCollum said in a statement Tuesday. "We couldn't have asked for a more talented and dedicated company and creative team or a more passionate team of producers."
Director/choreographer Marcia Milgrom Dodge's production of "Ragtime" debuted at the Kennedy Center's Eisenhower Theater April 18, and played a sold-out limited engagement through May 17 before transferring to Broadway where it began previews Oct. 23 and officially opened Nov. 15.
Time Magazine recently declared it the best musical of 2009.
The musical originally played on Broadway in 1998, earning 13 Tony Award nominations and winning four Tonys.
