Playbill.com has learned that the Washington, DC, engagement of the new national tour of Dreamgirls, the award-winning Motown musical about a girl-group on the rise who pay the price of fame, has been canceled due to soft ticket sales.
Scheduled to run July 28-Aug. 8 at the National Theatre, Dreamgirls was canceled by producers after advance ticket sales failed to meet expectations. The tour currently runs through Jan. 2, 2011, and could possibly return to Washington next year.
The 2010 tour itinerary, which includes stops in San Francisco, Nashville and Miami, will continue as scheduled. Ticketholders for the National Theatre engagement who purchased their tickets with a credit card will be automatically refunded.
