The Times They Are A-Changin', the new musical conceived, directed and choreographed by Twyla Tharp and told through the songs of Bob Dylan, will play its final performance at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre at 3pm on Sunday, November 19. At the time of its closing, it will have played 28 performances and 35 previews. The show had an out-of-town tryout earlier this year at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego.

The show stars Michael Arden, Thom Sesma, and Lisa Brescia, and features Lisa Gajda, Neil Haskell, Jason McDole, Charlie Neshyba-Hodges, Jonathan Nosan, John Selya, Ron Todorowski, Alexander Brady, John Herrera, Alaine Kashian, Katie Klaus, Keith Kühl, Marty Lawson, Joseph Putignano, Cary Tedder, and Jason Wooten.

In his TheaterMania review, David Finkle wrote: "Whatever the dance purveyor [Tharp] is doing, it doesn't jibe with the Dylan material. Indeed, what Tharp does to some of Dylan's songs -- amid Santo Loquasto's gaudy sets and costumes and Donald Holder's flashing lights -- shouldn't happen to a dog. "
