Low ticket sales force the closure of two Broadway shows. After opening to negative reviews on June 19th, "Holler If Ya Hear Me," the Tupac Shakur influenced show has been silenced. In recent weeks the show was running below 50 percent capacity. And after packing a punch for three months "Rocky" also gets knocked off the Great White Way. With its full-size boxing ring, giant video screens and techno wizardry, the musical thrilled audiences with its rousing finale, but critics weren't kind to the production. The final performance is scheduled for August 17th. And after two and a half years Disney is packing up its Broadway production of "Newsies" and taking it on the road.
