NEW YORK (AP) - The new Broadway musical about a group of people hoping to win a truck is driving into the sunset following disastrous box office sales.
Producers said Monday that "Hands on a Hardbody," based on a 1997 documentary, will close Saturday after playing less than 60 total performances.
The show has a book by Doug Wright and songs by Trey Anastasio and Amanda Green. It's about an endurance contest at a Texas car dealership offering a free pickup to whoever can keep their hands on it the longest.
The musical, which opened March 21 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, pulled in only $240,040 for the week ending Sunday, or 22 percent of its potential of $1,071,968. The highest amount it ever grossed over an eight-show week was $321,043.
