Paul Simon's 'Capeman' To Reopen

"The Capeman," Paul Simon's ill-fated foray into the Broadway musical, was so spectacular and costly a flop that when it closed in 1998 after only 68 performances, it was hard to imagine it could ever have an afterlife. But time passes, memories fade, and tastes change, and so for three nights beginning Saturday, the Public Theater will be presenting a new, streamlined version of the show outdoors at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park.
