Secrets Every Smart Traveler Should Know, the popular Off-Broadway musical, will close Monday, February 21st after 953 performances. The show opened at the Triad on October 30, 1997, and was hailed as one of the most original and talent-packed revues to hit the stage in a decade. Its continued popularity with theatergoers turned Secrets into the ninth longest-running show in Off-Broadway history.
The show's producer, Scott Perrin, based the production on sister Wendy Perrin's best-selling Fodor's travel guides. The hilarious musical is comprised of six actor/singer/musicians who parody the obsession of humanity to travel to exotic destinations no matter what mishap; embarrassment or disaster gets in their way. The show is directed by Broadway stalwart Patrick Quinn, with music direction by Stan Freeman, who won an Emmy Award for his work on The Carol Burnett Show. The production has also played in Boston and Miami. Tickets are available through Tele-Charge (212) 239-6200 or on-line at www.telecharge.com.
