“The Master Butchers Singing Club” will be doing a little less singing than originally scheduled because of week demand.
 
A Guthrie official confirmed that the decision to cut a week off the run of the premiere of this play adapted from Louise Erdrich's novel was “primarily a box office decision,” said spokesperson Melodie Bahan on Friday. “It’s disappointing because the show has been so well-received by audiences and critics and everyone who saw it.”
 
Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Marsha Norman did the adaptation and Broadway director Francesca Zambello staged the show that will now close Oct. 30.
 
The actors will miss out on a week of pay because the theater gave the required two weeks’ notice. The early closure gives the Guthrie more time to work on the new version of “A Christmas Carol,” said Bahan. “If there’s a silver lining, it’s that the tech crew can start building this new, big complicated show earlier.”
