Stage musical RAGTIME is set to close after just two months on Broadway.
The $8 million (£5 million) revival, telling the stories of three families from different cultures, has struggled to bring in the crowds since opening at New York's Neil Simon Theatre in November (09), and the curtain will fall for the final time on Sunday (03Jan10).
Lead producer Kevin MCCollum says, "While we're saddened and disappointed to announce that Ragtime must close, bringing this beautiful and powerful production to Broadway has been a joyous experience.
"We couldn't have asked for a more talented and dedicated company and creative team or a more passionate team of producers."
Sunday's show will be the cast's 57th performance.

The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
