On Tuesday, S, her parents, and I hit the Met for a few hours. That evening, we met up with my parents, aunt & uncle, sister, and some friends for dinner near Times Square. Then, the opening night of High! It was terrific: a good show, a supportive audience, and a great celebration!
Then, this afternoon, the closing notice came out. The reviews were not great. Many were downright mean, with only Kathleen Turner and John Lasiter (lighting designer) coming out with only positive notices. So, with little presumed prospect of recouping their investment, the show posted. It will close on Sunday, with only eight performances after opening. It's a damn shame.
