American Girl Place, the popular doll company, will stop presenting live theater in its retail stores, according to The Chicago Tribune.

The newspaper reports that the Los Angeles store will no longer present its version of The American Girls Revue on April 13, while the New York and Chicago stores will cease presenting their shows on September 1. The New York store, located on Fifth Avenue, also offers two other shows: Circle of Friends: An American Girls Musical and Bitty Bear's Matinee: The Family Tree.

The newspaper quoted company spokesperson Julie Parks as saying: "It's a difficult day for us. Management felt that the time was right to find new entertaining experiences for our guests."
