Please don't get me wrong or think I'm negative. I'm the last person who wants a show to close! But it seems that Nice Work isn't really pulling in the crowds at the moment, with last weeks capacity only at 50%. I was planning on seeing it during my trip in November or should I go for something else? Thoughts?

You can plan for it, if you buy your tix, you get your money refunded. (Within a few days.)

However, if I were a betting woman, I'd say chances are slim that it will still be playing.
If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

Although I wish I could say the sales were due to the vacation of Matthew Broderick last week, I know that they have been at about 60% for a while. But, I'm an optimist and loved the show-- so I would recommend planning on it as dramamama611 said, but maybe have a backup in mind in case the show closes.

I think it's safe through Christmas. It's been averaging 700-800K a week through the summer and Matthew was on vacation last week, so it probably would have done $700 last week in a traditionally down week for Broadway. It may not pull in $1M but it doesn't have to. Not sure what they need to pull in to show a profit but it's hard to believe that the show costs $500K a week to put on.

^I'm almost positive that it costs more than that to run. Matthew Broderick probably makes a ton of money per week, and Kelli O'Hara makes a pretty penny too. I would say the running costs are more around 650k per week.

Broderick's salary is probably tied into ticket sales and it's impossible to know of course, but I'm sure Broderick is not doing this for the money. Kelli probably gets a decent salary but the sets are pretty basic with no special effects or gimmicks so I don't believe the production costs could be as high as $600K. However, I think it's safe to say this production will not run a long time. I love the show and will be sad to see it end, but I think it has legs until after the holidays.

The fall convention and trade show season starts in a couple of weeks and runs through mid-December when tens of thousands of conventioneers and buyers flood into NYC each week. NICE WORK is exactly the type of show they will want to see. Expect to see a nice bump in business in the next few weeks. January will be a tough month for all shows but come February the conventions and trade shows are back. I expect the show will run at least through the end of Broderick's contract.

I see this closing after the holiday season. It will close most likely the first or second week in January. Shows usually close late August or after the holidays. Since it made the late August rush I say it's hear to stay till January ( the next show closing rush). Rarely do shows close from October- December.
