I think it'll do well, especially if they make it just a limited run(through mid-June).
A Chorus Line played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013.

This will be a failure just like the other two.

^ yay for positivity, its not going to be a crazy hit but with the right changes this could easily do better than the last two shows.

They're having difficulty selling out the Duke...how do the producers hope to sell a much larger (and definitely not hospitable to success) venue?

I presume the hope, as others have pointed out, is to take the hit on Broadway and sell it regionally.

Out of all the great off-Broadway shows this season that could have transferred, I am beyond puzzled why they chose to transfer this show. I would have picked anything *except* this show to transfer. Also, January/February are traditionally the worst theater months in terms of attendance.

Think the clue is in the title 'Bomb'!

Yeah, I'm sure you thought they should have transferred "And Miles To Go" with its "big-name cast" including the woman who "starred in Wicked on Broadway". Guess Bronx Bombers didn't have enough big names for you.

Off the top of my head: Mr. Burns, Old Friends, Buyer and Cellar, Fun Home, Natasha and Pierre, Here Lies Love...

Yes, so many better options to have brought to Broadway.

Despite the naysayers we really enjoyed it.

It is a shame Topol is being replaced.

Yes, it's a blatant grab for sports-loving tourists. And Yankees tix may very well be cheaper than this.

I'm a Yankees fan, and I know this has FLOP written all over it.

Wow. Didn't see this one coming. Who is producing this? Could we ask whomever it is to gift each of us with 10K or so, because if he's prepared to flush millions down the toilet, I'm sure he's got money to burn. I wish them luck, I guess, even though they are taking a theatre off the market for this misguided folly. And there are so few theatres available now. I guess there might be one Yankees fan somewhere who will buy a $150 ticket to this. We shall see.

this show wont be expensive to run, theres only 4 scene changes with minimal scenery with nine people, at most 350-400,000 a week. with the mlb and yankees as producers this should do fine.
