The British stage version of Gone With The Wind has gone with the wind, shutting down after about a month after neither critics nor audiences appeared to give a damn. The BBC observed that turning the film into a stage musical directed by Trevor Nunn had originally been "considered a sure-fire recipe for success." Over the past month, the musical was cut from its original length of four hours 20 minutes to three hours 10 minutes. But, the BBC said, "It was too little, too late."
