Broadway’s new revival of Neil Simon’s Brighton Beach Memoirs will close on Sunday, a source with the production told The New York Times. Also, the companion production of Simon’s Broadway Bound will not open as planned. Poor ticket sales are to blame. Brighton Beach Memoirs opened on Oct. 25 to mixed-to-positive reviews (EW gave it an A-), but grossed only about $124,000 for eight performances last week, The Times reported. Laurie Metcalf led the cast and David Cromer was directing both productions.
