Nick Jonas How To Succeed Canceled

nickjonascanceled


How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying will end its run on May 20 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre, reports Broadway. Currently starring Nick Jonas and Beau Bridges, the musical will have played 30 preview and 473 regular performances at the time of closing. Jonas was set to star in the production, which recouped its initial investment in December 2011, through July 1.

The revival of How to Succeed opened on March 27, 2011, originally starring Daniel Radcliffe and John Larroquette. The production earned nine Tony Award nominations including Best Revival of a Musical, with Larroquette receiving a Tony for Best Featured Actor in a Musical. In addition to Radcliffe and Jonas, Darren Criss also played Finch for a three-week engagement earlier this year.

    Lol I guess both Miley and nick are flops now they can both retire and grow old together

    This is sad, Nick must feel so frustrated.
    Nothing he does really gets the attention and credit it deserved. Joe, instead, parties and goes on dating rality shows, but still gets more space on the media.

    I really do hope the Jonas Brothers make a successful album, they deserve it.

    Last week it only sold 4,848 out of 11,392 tickets making only $475,977 out of a possible $1,393,600 which is only 42%

    I thought it might be closing soon with no word of a replacement for Nick. But, I thought they would of waited till his contract was up and hope for a boost in sales when girls get out of school.

    yes i thought the same thing. Why they didn’t wait until the end of June? The difference wasn’t that much

    “the show has been struggling at the box office in recent weeks despite the star power of its leading man, the pop singer Nick Jonas, in the role of the executive J. Pierrepont Finch. Last week, the show took in just $367,605 at the box office, or about 26 percent of its potential gross at the Hirschfeld.”

    Too bad nick, this is what you get when you date 27 year olds… WAKE UP.

    Nick gave it his all. When he started in January, he was coming off a year w/a very public relationship, and only working on other peoples music. He was losing lots of fans. But since February (between the end of Nelta & ads for HTS) his fans were coming back and on school break weeks he did very well. Between this & the end of Hollywood records, it must be scary. But this is Nick Jonas. He will regroup, reassess, and return. Who would have predicted how well he acted & danced in the play? They need to stop with the solo stuff and get the Jonas fans motivated for the group and also grow some new fans.

    Maybe someone has another job offer that they start May 21. That’s the only thing I can think of for the strange end date. And they only give two week notice which I find kinda strange.

    Let’s face it. Nick’s not normal. When he puts his mind to something, it gets done cause he’s super-focused. The Jonas Brothers will have an amazing album coming up. Which is great cause it’s been a long wait.

  • Anonymous

    The show was actually doing very well up until about 3 weeks ago. Sales have dropped for many of the Broadway shows over the past few weeks. Newsies just opened on Broadway and that is really packing the house. HT$ sales would have went up as soon as June approached and college and school let out for the summer. Crap that they couldn’t ride it out for two more weeks to get to that point. Also sucks that Nick’s EP was released today and is #3 on the Itunes Soundtrack charts and #28 overall on the charts. Pretty excellent for a Broadway EP with only 5 songs.

    Nick seems pretty crushed if you look at his tweets. He was so good in the show, saw it in March. He didn’t deserve this. There are so many fans upset because they had tickets for his last month on Broadway. Many people were waiting to to a trip to NYC in the summer.

    i think he cancelled it because he wants to focus on the Jonas Brothers :D

    The cast was told just before the curtain tonight. So it appears Nick had little or no prior knowledge. He might have had an inclination a few days ago based on a tweet. But this is crap. God, I just want to hug him.

  • Anonymous

    How to Succeed was going to end it’s run on Broadway after Nick’s run. He’s not the reason it wrapped up on Broadway. All Broadway shows run for a period of time. Unfortunately, he’ll catch the blame. HT$ did not properly promote him. He was never given the same opportunity or coverage that Daniel was given. They didn’t release his EP until today…almost 5 months after he started his run. That should have been release right away so the public could hear how talented he was. Too many people still attach the Disney stigma to him…Nick is so much more that that.

  • Anonymous

    Isn’t it amazing that his EP is #3 on Soundtracks on Itunes without any promotion? Just goes to show that his fans are nationwide and worldwide, while Broadway is localized. It was hard to tap into a fanbase that only has off on weekends, holidays, and summer in the middle of the winter and only in the tristate NY area.

  • Anonymous

    That show had been going for a long time and no “star” performer could maintain interest in it. Time for Nick to move on to his next project maybe a Jonas Bros one. Not entirely sure if the boys can be successful as a band again – sometimes your time is just done and over and fans have moved on.

    I don’t mean to sound rude, but Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and even Christina Aguilera made a pretty big name for themselves after retiring from Disney. They were mousketeeres together.
    It isn’t impossible to actually make a name for yourself. The journey down that new road usually is what destroys most Disney stars. They are so used to such a huge production and name to boost their sales and get them gigs, making it on your own afterwards without much of a powerhouse behind you can get really frustrating..

    I think we should focus on what’s important. Nick’s learnt about this experience as much many fans had the chance to go see him on HTS. He tried his best and did all he could. He’s not the one to blame. Nick owns real talent when it comes about being on stage even if it’s a broadway play. Maybe this didn’t go as we all planned but it is so good to know Nick got to meet teenagers who love doing musical plays such as HTS is and get to give some advices away to them.
    I don’t get why people say he’s the one to blame. Go see Nick backstage recording HTS’s EP and all those interviews about the show. It puts a big smile on his face, why do people feel the need to bring him down?
    People blaming it on him obviously don’t really know what being on stage feels like then. I hope he is okay with this. Crossing fingers for him to be on jersey Boys.

    I see . What i don’t understand is what they were expecting from Nick. Nick was the same person with the same popularity and fanbase when they signed the contract so basically they shouldn’t have expected more than this from him. I am not an expert but eve I didn’t expect him to bring a lot of people to the theater. And no he’s never had any sold out show.

    I don’t think the people who were in charge of hiring him really knew Nick’s standing. They just heard “Jonas” and were like, “I’ve heard of him! That popular Jonas brother!

    Agreed. I think the producers expected huge sales because Nick is a pop star. But, Nick, even though he had his start in broadway, isn’t know for that sort of thing. While Daniel brought tickets in because he opened the show and Darren brought in sales because it was a limted engagement. Plus both of them are known for their stage work. Plus Nick suffers the “Disney Curse” and people have assumptions about him because of it.

    what the hell man? I was going to see my fav man as soon as I found my plane tickets..now I’m not going to be able to.

    Broadway is f*in stupid. don’t they realize that it is low sales because much of Nick’s fanbase are school kids and I don’t know about anyone else but I don’t exactly have money right now and we’re still waiting on our check

    I don’t know but as calm and collected as Nick acts, I’m sure he’s the most disappointed person of all because we all know how he is with work. sure he may have the Jonas Brothers but he must feel like sh!t.

    Not just what they’ve heard; they also had meetings with him. What I mean is they don’t fully understand that with Justin Bieber and One Direction around, and the fact that the Jonas’ just don’t have that huge of an effect anymore, Nick just wasn’t gonna bring in the revenue that he once could have. With Daniel, Harry Potter had just ended; people weren’t ready to let it go; most American fans never got a chance to see him anyway because he was always filming over in England. With Darren, “Glee” is still on air and very relevant. Nick just isn’t at his peak anymore.

    He just doesn’t have enough of a a fan base to carry 8 shows a week on Broadway for 6 months. Now if he was part of a touring company, I think it would do wonderfully. But once the initial fangirls went, not that many people can afford to travel to NYC to see a show when you factor in airfare, lodging, meals, etc.

But honestly, nobody has money to afford 300$ tickets, these people are out of their minds.

    For those unfamiliar with the world of Broadway, let me clarify. Broadway musicals cannot be “canceled”. Performances of Broadway musicals can be canceled but shows cannot. Shows “end their run”
    Revivals rarely last even as long on Broadway as “How to Succeed” did. When a show recoups all of the money they spent on it, they make pure profit from then on. If they’re not longer making a sufficient amount of money then they stop the run of the show and invest elsewhere…whenever they feel like it.
    Unfortunately this show was attempting to run almost exclusively on star power as it is a revival of a fairly old musical. Star power only takes a show so far. Nick was in the show during a slow season and therefore happened to be the one who was in it when the show stopped making money. It won’t hurt his career. It’s just the way the business works.

  • Anonymous

    Well, Nick has two choices to break the Disney stigma. He can become a frequent adopter of puppies, or he can fight back and put his driven nature into a great new album. Don’t hide. Don’t sulk. Have the fans see the making of the album so they can keep anticipating it.

  • crazylady

    also Christina’s doing ok but I don’t think she’d be doing as well if she wasn’t on the Voice.
    her last album flopped.

    and Jonas was popular at one time so I don’t know why we’re talking about making a name. I think you mean staying in the spotlight (if you’re even here anymore anon)

    So how is “Wicked” doing so amazing?

    Because shows like Wicked, Lion King, etc are going to pull in the tourists who don’t know anything about theater and are therefore going to go with names of shows they know, or shows who have a longstanding reputation for being a safe bet.

    My parents went to NYC and wanted to see a couple of shows. They don’t know anything about theater. What did they pick? Wicked and Chicago. F-ing Chicago. I told them that show is tired and worn out, but they saw the movie and liked it, so they felt it was a safe bet over something like Once because they didn’t know anything about it.

    The first year, a non brand name show is going to pull in the theater fans. After that, they have to rely on the tourists and the only way to do that is to either be a big splashy show like Spiderman or Wicked, or use a known name above the marquee. Sister Act sure didn’t pick Raven Symone because they’re blown away by her talent, they picked her because hopefully families with kids/teens will want to see “That’s So Raven” on the stage.

    ————-
    Both Daniel and Darren had girlfriends. Daniel’s girlfriend was around the theatre a lot (albeit, not many people knew who she was, and also, she didn’t know anyone in the city, so I don’t blame her for choosing to spend time at the theatre; she must have been lonely). Delta’s flaunting certainly wasn’t beneficial, but it wasn’t all her. I don’t think Nick handled 2011 all that well either. He wasn’t speaking to fans a whole lot, and maybe that’s because he was too focused on Delta, but that’s not her fault; he could have been in a relationship and still showed the fans love. It’s wasn’t a pick-and-choose, but he made it seem like it was, and now then it was a “surprise” that the fans weren’t waiting for him when he got back, buying out his show. I don’t think that was right =/

    Yeah. Very true about the keeping in touch w/fans part. Sometimes it seems like he has no management. He’s so good about meeting w/fans one on one. But the promotion on social media is very erratic.

    I think it doesn’t help that he’s reserved. maybe part of him is still not used to being the center of attention. his brothers used to do all the talking.

    That may be it right there. When he was with his brothers, they are very social creatures and made up for his serious & quiet side. You can see he loves performing and doing his job well. But I think he finds the social side to fame a bit draining.

    what the hell man? I was going to see my fav man as soon as I found my plane tickets..now I’m not going to be able to.

    Broadway is f*in stupid. don’t they realize that it is low sales because much of Nick’s fanbase are school kids and I don’t know about anyone else but I don’t exactly have money right now and we’re still waiting on our check

    I don’t know but as calm and collected as Nick acts, I’m sure he’s the most disappointed person of all because we all know him and work. sure he may have the Jonas Brothers but he must feel like sh!t.

    Let’s face it . A broadway show needs an audience more than just school kids.
    As for how disappointed he may feel now I agree

    I definitely agree with that. Even in Nick’s low ticket sales, his highest weeks have been the times school was out; spring break was amazing for him. I guess the producers have just grown fed up with losing money.

    well now I’m fed up too. it’s like someone up there hates me. a few companies have discontinued the food/beverages I would consume the most, people won’t hire me at the jobs I have really really wanted, we didn’t sell much at our yard sale and now it’s like Broadway wants to piss me off
    at least they have money..aholes.

    Not just what they’ve heard; they also had meetings with him. What I mean is they don’t fully understand that with Justin Bieber and One Direction around, and the fact that the Jonas’ just don’t have that huge of an effect anymore, Nick just wasn’t gonna bring in the revenue that he once could have. With Daniel, Harry Potter had just ended; people weren’t ready to let it go; most American fans never got a chance to see him anyway because he was always filming over in England. With Darren, “Glee” is still on air and very relevant. Nick just isn’t at his peak anymore.

    It’s being cut short due to low ticket sales, which can not be blamed on a single person.
    Nick is talented, he does have charisma, he’s got all of that; but that’s not always enough. It’s a fantastic show, but it’s not a classic like Phantom of the Opera or Les Misérables. It’s been on for over a year; most people have seen it already, and it’s a show to see once, maybe twice. I only saw it twice with Daniel and I’m a HUGE Daniel fan. It’s just not a show you go see over and over again. I can’t understand how some people saw it over 20 times; I’d get so bored.

    It failed to sell, but the blame cannot be put on Nick.

    And that’s where your ignorance comes in. Nick is not the only person who has anything to do with this show. There are writers, the orchestra, the dancers, the other roles, the show itself. Like I said above this comment, it’s not a show you see over and over again like Phantom or Les Misérables, and Nick got the shitty end of the stick, being the third Finch. It’s a fun show, but it’s not a classic, and that is not Nick’s fault.

    Plus, if it was all Nick’s fault, they would have just gotten rid of Nick. Nick has a fantastic, good-looking, talented understudy. They could have dropped Nick, stuck the understudy in, and *poof* problem fixed. But because that wasn’t the case, it wasn’t that easy.

    Except the way the theater is today, people aren’t going to pay to see someone they’ve never heard of. There always has to be something on the marquee pulling people in, whether it’s a well known character (like Spiderman) or association with known names (like Book of Mormon having Trey & Matt from South Park to pull people in.)

    I’m sure the shows producers felt Nick could bring the fans in. At the beginning of 2011 he had a great fan base. But 2011 was a year of no new music, Nick hiding in a Beat Lab and the only time he emerged was w/his publicity hungry new woman. It was great for her career, but shot his to hell. He shied away from twitter and did not keep in touch with his fan base. We had a few TV appearances, the Quaker Chewy thing, one US concert and half assed promotion for everything except his relationship. But, ultimately, he gave a great performance in the play and it’s sad so many will never know.

    So how is “Wicked” doing so amazing? Ever since Idina and Kirsten left, it’s had names that aren’t well-known (or known at all). “Cats” did well without a huge name, “Billy Elliot” is doing well, and “Book of Mormon” is doing well more by word-of-mouth than its association with South Park.
    And people who go see Broadway are people who are looking for a good show, not a big name. Do big names help? Absolutely. When Nick is in a theatrical production, a huge part of the audience are people who would otherwise never go see a production like that. But on its own, Broadway succeeds because of its name, not the name of the people on it.

    That’s another good point. Nick signed the contract and had the job way before he and Delta broke up; he was still being very secluded when he got the job; his fan base hadn’t gone down as much as it was by the end of 2011. It’s not like the job could just be yanked from him.
    Everyone was just hoping for the best, and it fell short of their expectations.

    that’s too bad! but I guess now Nick can focus more with the band and all. they really need to do something to get all their fans back. Do things they used to like live chats as a group or funny youtube videos. I mean, there’s no denying that they’ve lost lots of them and we all know that without the fans, they’ll flop. I think they should show more interest with interacting with the fans, give them what they want (which I guess they’ve already kind of figured out with ‘Married to Jonas’ and all) I wish all the best for them and am gonna support them no matter what.

    I don’t mean to sound rude, but Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and even Christina Aguilera made a pretty big name for themselves after retiring from Disney. They were mousketeeres together.
    It isn’t impossible to actually make a name for yourself. The journey down that new road usually is what destroys most Disney stars. They are so used to such a huge production and name to boost their sales and get them gigs, making it on your own afterwards without much of a powerhouse behind you can get really frustrating..

    They were the exceptions, not the rule, and Disney wasn’t nearly as strict back then or had the reputation it does now. To compare Justin/Christina/Britney time to Miley/Demi/Jonas/Selena time, or even Hilary and Raven, is ridiculous and unfair.

    I drove 13 hours and spent two night in NYC just to see this show. It was incredible, funny and Nick really shined in the role. He has nothing to be ashamed of. HT$ recovered their initial 9million dollar investment in December 2011 and it was pretty well known that they were ending the show after Nick’s run. Aside from the promotional posters & commercials in NYC area, they failed to market him to a national audience. His EP is #3 on the ITunes Soundtrack charts right now and in the Top 40 overall. If they would have released that his first week on Broadway we might be looking at a much different scenario. He has an incredible voice and that soundtrack proves it. Nick is not to blame…the same production company has pitched three other Broadway shows that lasted only a few weeks & have already failed. I think the entire production company was counting on Nick to fund everything. Sucks

    If I can drive 13 hours to see Nick in HT$, then his NYC area fans should pack that theater the next two weeks and make sure Nick has the chance to close out the show with his head held high. Go see the show and support him in something that is so important to him.

    Nick loves play to play Finch and was so good at it :(
    The people who went to see HTS only had nice things to say about Nick.
    Smh, the HTS producers only care about the money and not the talent.
    I just hope Nick doesn’t feel like failure because he’s not. He’s amazing and the mature way he handled the situation was
    incredible, i don’t how he could do it. I’d tell all those ungrateful bitches to go fuck theirself but Nick no, he has so much class.

    That’s pretty harsh, as well as untrue. How would you feel if you put $9 million into a show and then you weren’t getting your money back because the show wasn’t selling? I’m sure you’d be just as upset as the producers.
    The annoying thing about this is that people fail to see that this is actually a business. Everyone involved does this to put food on their plates, clothes on their backs, and a roof over their heads; life doesn’t come free. They all have passion and talent, but unfortunately, that doesn’t pay the bills. You have to get the money from somewhere, and if it’s not working here, you gotta go somewhere else. It’s sad, but it’s true. That’s reality.

    He didn’t cancel it, you nimrod, the show itself was canceled. First of all, Nick doesn’t have that kind of power; he can’t close the show just because he wants to focus on something else. 2) He couldn’t just leave the show either, especially since he was under contract until July 1.
    Not to mention, Nick is too professional to do either of those things.

    Honestly, I can’t even with some people.

    They haven’t filmed a music video for it though, so if something is being released, it’s gonna be a live performance. I just hope it won’t be the official video.

    I was calm, but honestly, in what world does it make sense that Nick would sign on until July 1, and then all of a sudden pull out two months before his contracted end in a completely unprofessional move and be like, “Nope, I wanna focus on my music, bye!” and be the cause of everyone down there losing their jobs two months early? Talk about coming out of left field >.< Plus, the show has understudies; David (Nick’s understudy) could have easily taken over if Nick, for some un-contracted reason, did have to leave the show. Shit, I’ll never see David as Finch now :(

    Yes, I hate that too. It’s annoying how some artists think it’s okay for a live performance to be considered a MV. I really wanted to see a new MV with the boys. Bleh.

    And we don’t know that. Back in February there were rumors of them filming a MV for MTT and wanting to release it on Valentines Day. Nobody knows anything, so we can only hope. n_n

    Nah, I’ve seen her be really bitchy and hateful, especially about Demi, which is so hypocritical, considering her username. She hated that I would call her out on her shit, which is why she doesn’t like me. I’m “not flawless” because I put her on the spot, and she doesn’t like that (though in her defense, no one likes that).

But since I wait so long to get them done again, it always hurts like a freaking mofo.

    Hahaha I should shut my mouth too. Not asking for more crap.

    Aww that sucks. Apply lotion to it, just a small amount, and it should help a bit.
    My woman started working at a salon on Queens, then she opened her own place in Queens, then one in Manhattan, then another in Queens, and prices vary depending on what borough you’re in (Manhattan is very expensive to live in or run a business), so if I see her in Queens, it’s $5, if I see her in Manhattan, it’s $7 (but she usually charges me just the $5 anyway since my mom and I have gone to her for so long lol).

    lol no, $7 is good too, especially if she does such a good job. If I go with my mom, she gets her legs waxed, her upper lip waxed, her eyebrows done, then I get my eyebrows done and upper lip waxed (I shave my legs; waxing them hurts way too bad lol) so with all that money being made, she doesn’t mind knocking off a couple dollars for regulars. My mom also recommends everyone to her, so that helps her too.
