Dylan Shaky On Broadway
Twlya Tharp's new musical -- which uses the music of Bob Dylan -- opened in previews on Broadway to modest sales of $342,000. It doesn't seem nearly as obvious a fit as her musical with Billy Joel's music. But all they need is great reviews and the show will take off. Meanwhile, the lure of "A Chorus Line" remains potent, the revival of "Heartbreak House" looks iffy and that man and his dummy show "Jay Johnson: The Two and Only" clearly would have struggled in an OFF Broadway house. On Broadway, it grossed $53,424 which has to be close to a record low.
