Broadway's 'A Time to Kill' to close this month

NEW YORK (AP) - After some critical roasting and a constant box office slump, "A Time to Kill" will soon die on Broadway.

Producers of the courtroom drama, adapted from the best-selling novel by John Grisham, said Wednesday they'll close the show after the Nov. 17 performance.

The play centers on the mid-1980s trial of a black man accused of killing the two white men who attacked his daughter.

The cast includes Sebastian Arcelus, Tom Skerritt, John Douglas Thompson, Fred Dalton Thompson, Patrick Page, Tonya Pinkins and Ashley Williams.

It opened Oct. 20 to poor reviews and last week was half full and grossed just $215,431 of its $693,936 potential.
