    The Broadway revival of "Ragtime," will go dark January second, according to "The New York Times."

    "We had to close for the simple reason that we didn't sell enough tickets and the fact that another show has offered to be in our house, said Kevin McCollum, the lead producer, in an interview according to The Times.

    The musical is based on E.L. Doctorow's novel and is set in turn-of-the-century New York.

    "RAGTIME weaves together three distinctly American tales -- that of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician -- united by their courage, compassion and belief in the promise of the future," according to the show's website.

    Investors will lose their entire eight million capitalization, according to The Times.

    The revival opened November 15. The last show is set for Saturday, January 3.
