GLORY DAYS
at the Circle in the Square

TEARS OF GLORY
By ROGER B. HARRIS
Published May 7 2008

  Scene from

Hamlet couldn't have put it any better. If it be not to come, it will be now...The readiness is all." In other words, Glory Days, the new musical, which opened on Tuesday May 6,to scathing reviews, has closed. It will have played 17 previews and one regular performance at the Circle in the Square.

Producers John O'Boyle and Ricky Stevens said, We adore Glory Days and everyone connected with this production. Sadly, given the over-night reviews and our low advance sales, we believe it is prudent to close the show on Broadway immediately."

Writing on theaternewsonline.com, our reviewer Robert Cashill called Glory Days just plain boring-bad and predicted it was likely to be around about as long as school recess.

The late lamented show starred Steven Booth, Andrew C, Call, Adam Halpin and Jesse JP Johnson. It was directed by Eric Schaeffer. The creative team included James Kronzer (scenic design), Sasha Ludwig-Siegel ( costume design), Mark Landis (lighting design) and Peter Hylenski (sound design). Vocal arrangements were by Nick Blaemire and Jesse Vargas. Music supervision, arrangements and orchestrations were by Vargas.

Glory Days was produced by Boyle, Stevens, Richard E. Leopold and Lizzie Leopold, Max Productions, alan Mingo, Jr. and Broadway Across America in association with Signature Theatre.
