The Broadway run of Gabriel Byrne's solo show Walking with Ghosts will end its run at the Music Box Theatre over a month early on November 20. The work was scheduled to conclude on December 30 after 75 performances.

Lonny Price directs the show, which is based on Byrne's memoir of the same title. It explores his life as a young boy growing up on the outskirts of Dublin before his journey to stardom, and the characters that have orbited it.

Alongside Price, the creative team features Sinéad McKenna (set and lighting designer), Joan O'Clery (costume designer), and Sinéad Diskin (sound designer).

Walking With Ghosts premiered at the Gaiety Theatre in Dublin earlier this year, and ran at London's Apollo Theatre before the Broadway run.

"Does Byrne have enough compelling material to fill that time?" our review asked. "For the most part, the answers to both questions turn out to be yes."
