What is this sketch really showing it's viewers aside from the laughs and jokes of SNL? Definitely it is allowing a wider public knowledge on the perils of the Broadway community. Last Sunday, 9 shows closed. Today, 5 more. Is this the end of Broadway? Are people not going to spend their now-saved money on tickets?
Probably not. History has shown us that more than once, many shows closed at one time on the Great White Way. Besides, what has closed ran it's course, and they closed on a better note than if they had muddled through Americas recession.
Don't let these closings sadden you, B-Way fans - there are great shows opening this season!
