[ # ] The Great Comet’s curtain is coming down
August 9th, 2017 under Broadway, Josh Groban


Josh Groban made his Broadway debut in The Great Comet last year and Grobanites flocked to see it. But then last month he left the show and so did his fans. His replacement did not bring in the audience, so the producers hired Mandy Patinkin to replace him. When word got out, several theater people protested the decision and the Homeland actor dropped out. That controversy came at a big cost for the Tony nominated show. One so big, its last performance will be on September 3rd. Which makes you wonder if saving one person’s job was worth it, since now a lot more are out of work because of it? I think not.

When it comes to the former star, Groban had this to say about the closing on Twitter, “Broadway is better with this brilliant diverse show on it. Plain as that. See and support while you can. All my ❤️ to my comet family.”
