The magic that was Fantasia ended when she left her extended run on the show on Jan. 7th. Bebe Winans and Chaka Khan came on to the show as Sophia and Harpo. But their star power wasn’t enough to save the ticket sales. After Fantasia left the show sales dropped from $770,000 to $389,000. And that drop is enough to kill any show which cost more then a million to keep going each week.

So if you havn’t seen it go see it now otherwise you will have to go to Atlanta in July for the National Black Arts Festival to see the show.
