Christina Applegate "Sweet Charity" musical concert has been halted due to the poor ticket sales after the star was forced to pull out from the show
Christina Applegate "Sweet Charity" musical concert has been halted due to the poor ticket sales after she was replaced by her understudy, Charlotte d'Amboise, while she was recovering from a broken foot while performing the show in Chicago, Illinois. Applegate had to withdraw from the $7.5 million production earlier this month and was expected to be back in shape to open in New York on April 18, 2005.
Because of that the show's producer Barry Weissler decided to shut it down on Sunday following its 10-day run at Boston's Colonial Theater, killing Applegate's Big Apple dreams. He says the decision to close the production, which is about unlucky-in-love dancer Charity Hope Valentine, was "painful but fiscally responsible."
