DUCK COMMANDER MUSICAL
Duck Commander Musical is closing after a month of lackluster ticket sales in Las Vegas.
Who could've predicted that Las Vegas visitors wouldn't flock to Duck Commander Musical
— a, well, musical based on the Robertson family of reality-TV performers in Monroe?
The Las Vegas Sun reported tonight
that Duck Commander Musical
will close May 17 at the Rio Las Vegas after about a month of performances:
The show struggled at the box office at the Rio, typically selling fewer than 100 tickets per performance even at deep discounts.
According to the musical's website, the cheap seats were $53 — and despite a star-studded premiere April 15 that brought out big stars like Guy Fieri
, reviews were lackluster. As The Hollywood Reporter put it
, "What might have been a campy and hilarious look at some good ole boys who hit it big turns out to be a paean to religion and family. With fart jokes."
New Orleans likes a good fart joke as well as any city.So who's going to stage it locally? Southern Rep? AllWays? Mid-City Theater? Running With Scissors? Anyone?
