A BOB DYLAN-inspired Broadway musical is set to close less than a month after its premiere after receiving a critical mauling. THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN' will shut after just 28 performances next week (19NOV06), a spokesman for the show's public relations firm revealed yesterday (08NOV06). In a New York Times review, theatre critic BEN BRANTLEY called the Bob Dylan show "the latest heart-rending episode in Broadway's own reality soap opera, 'When bad shows happen to great songwriters."' The musical was conceived and choreographed by TWYLA THARP, who also transformed Billy Joel's songs into Tony-award winning musical MOVIN' OUT.
