Rod Stewart’s Broadway Musical Lasts Only Nine Days
Rod Stewart’s ill-timed and ill-advised debut on the Broadway stage closed after only nine days.
His adaptation of the quaint English nursery rhyme, Please Porridge Hot, apparently left New York audiences quite, quite cold.
Times Theater Critic, Barry Quinn quipped, "NY just didn't think him sexy."
“I guess there’s no telling what people want anymore,” said Stewart. “I thought we had something for everybody. I mean, some people like it hot and some people like it cold and some people like it in the pot but not enough tickets got sold.”
