NEW YORK (AP) — Elisabeth Moss will be cutting her return to Broadway short — the revival of "The Heidi Chronicles" is closing.

Producers in an ad said Wednesday that the "Mad Men" star's turn as Wendy Wasserstein's heroine will end after the May 3 show after only 80 performances and disappointing ticket sales.

The play stars Jason Biggs of "Orange Is The New Black" and "American Pie" fame, Tony Award-nominee Bryce Pinkham from "A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder" and Tracee Chimo, of the play "Bad Jews." Pam MacKinnon directed.

The original run of "The Heidi Chronicles," which won the best-play Tony Award starring Joan Allen as well as the Pulitzer Prize for drama in 1989, lasted 620 performances.

Moss made her Broadway debut in "Speed-the-Plow" with Jeremy Piven in 2008.
