Money To Burn Crashes And Burns

The new musical Money To Burn has closed in London after only two performances. The show closed between it’s matinee and a planned evening performance, making it one of the shortest-lived runs ever in London’s West End. “The notices were unusually savage, especially in a town where theatre critics tend to couch their harsher observations with the occasional leavening word. Not so this time. Charles Spencer in The Daily Telegraph called the musical “jaw-droppingly dreadful.” In The Guardian, Michael Billington was one of several critics to give the show one star out of five: ‘Faced with such dross as this, one’s first inclination is to run screaming into the night’.”
