A Real Bomb-shell

Published: 2003-11-11
Charlie's Angel star Farrah Fawcett bombs during her Broadway debut. The Broadway show "Bobbi Boland" closed after preview performances. The comedy show about a former Miss Florida beauty queen – Fawcett – who feels her marriage threatened by a younger woman was scheduled to open on November 24 at the Cort Theatre.

"The play simply does not work in a Broadway house," said Joyce Johnson the shows producer. Bobbi Boland debuted in the more intimate setting of off-Broadway some years ago. "The vivid characters that I saw in such a small setting did not transfer to the Cort. It's as simple as that," said Johnson. Johnson said that she hopes Fawcett will be back on Broadway soon. Johnson added that she hoped that Bobbi Boland could open again in off-Broadway starring Fawcett.
