The country-rock production received mixed reviews after it opened at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre in New York City on March 21, but it will now end on April 13, after just 28 previews and 28 regular performances.

The show, based on the 1997 documentary by S.R. Bindler, tells the story of working-class Texas locals who enter an endurance contest to win a pickup truck, with the person who keeps their hands on the Nissan the longest getting to drive it home. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the show pulled in a modest $321,000 in its highest grossing week.
