$app->run(); method not working.

I've included 4 echo statements and it's missing the 4th:

I've chmod my root to 777

I'm on Ubuntu 14.04


require __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';

//use Monolog\Logger;
//use Monolog\Handler\StreamHandler;
//$log = new Logger('name');
//$log->pushHandler(new StreamHandler('app.txt', Logger::WARNING)$
//$log->addWarning('Oh Noes');

echo '1';

$app = new \Slim\Slim();

echo '2';

$app->get('/hello/:name', function ($name) {
    echo "Hello, $name";

echo '3';
echo '4';
