This spring Michael Moore had an idea for a Broadway show aimed at bringing down President Trump. The show premiered in early August but obviously has fallen short of its stated goal:

Well that didn’t take long:
Via the Wall Street Journal:
Film director Michael Moore may have arrived on Broadway with the self-professed goal of taking down a sitting president.
But in the end, his politically liberal-minded show, “The Terms of My Surrender,” which closed this past weekend, failed to wow at the box office.
In its 13-week run, including a preview period, the show had ticket sales of $4.2 million, according to BroadwayWorld.com, a theater website that tracks grosses based on data from the Broadway League, a trade group. That figure represents only about 49% of the show’s potential gross.
The WSJ also reports there’s a chance Moore could later take the show on the road, so get ready, California!

The name of the show suggests the show is all about him, and frankly, he's just not that interesting.

"I'm shocked!" said no theatregoer.

Ending because there aren’t enough ticket sales sounds like a very capitalist thing to do.
