RENT Ending Run on Broadway

After over a dozen years on Broadway.

The show will end on June 1st of this year and will end up as the 7th longest run in Broadway history.

"Co-producer Jeffrey Seller told the newspaper that ticket sales slowed noticeably in the fall. He did not immediately return a telephone call early Wednesday from The Associated Press.

Seller told the Times the show faced competition from such newer musicals as Legally Blonde: The Musical, which opened in April 2007, and Spring Awakening, which opened in December 2006.

Still, when Rent opened, "I couldn't have foreseen that we'd get to five years," he said."
