Broadway: Lincoln Center Theater Will Close “Flying Over Sunset” Three Weeks Early


Lincoln Center Theater — an enigmatic deal to begin with — is closing its main play three weeks early.

Now “Flying Over Sunset” will shutter on January 16th, the same day as “Ain’t Too Proud” down on real Broadway.

“FOS” was a strange musical about old movie stars taking acid. Tony Yazbeck, Harry Hadon Patton, Carmen Cusack, and Michael Korie star, James Lapine wrote and directed it. I never saw it because Lincoln Center Theater ignores me, and I’ve managed to live without their shows. I guess I’ll miss this one, too.

Did you know Carmen Cusack is married to an actor on “Days of our Lives,” the NBC soap filmed in Los Angeles? His name is Paul Telfer. There’s some trivia.

There are plenty of tickets available for the rest of the run. Maybe I’ll nip over to the TKTS booth and get one. Or not.
