Broadway's 'Leap of Faith' to close Sunday

NEW YORK (AP) — Too few people were willing to consider taking a "Leap of Faith."

Producers of the Broadway musical based on the 1992 film starring Steve Martin said Tuesday the show will close Sunday. It will have played 24 previews and 20 regular performances.

The musical had new songs by Alan Menken and stars Raul Esparza as a devious faith healer who is ready to scam residents of a down-and-out Kansas town. It got a Tony Award nomination for best musical but no other nods and some poor reviews.

Last week, it earned just $171,381 at the box office from a potential of $1,315,655.

Other shows stung by the lack of Tony attention have also announced they will close, including the now-shuttered "Seminar" and "Magic/Bird," which closes this week.
