I Think It's Time To Retire Dame Edna

All good things must come to an end and I'm afraid Dame Edna Everage's campy humor has reached the final curtain. So who do you think should replace Dame Edna, or is this kind of humor dead?

DAME EDNA EVERAGE and cabaret star MICHAEL FEINSTEIN's stint on Broadway is coming to an early end - the revue is to close less than two weeks after its official opening.

It's All About Me stars Australian entertainer Barry Humphries as his drag queen alter-ego Everage singing a collection of show tunes with musician/composer Feinstein in what was expected to be a hot ticket.

Previews began on 6 March (10), but the pair has failed to win over critics and Broadway audiences and producers will bring the curtain down for the final time on 4 April (10).
The two-man show opened at Henry Miller's Theatre on 23 March (10).

The Dame has just been doing the same shtick for too long, and has milked it out several times over. She has nothing to be ashamed of - it was a great act and it had a long rung.
