So my one week in NYC in January is turning out pretty well so far. Tickets to The River and The Elephant Man are secured (Hugh and Bradley - oh mamma!). But I cried when I saw that It's Only A Play will end its run before I arrive. What are the chances that the season will be extended? Does it happen often with plays with big stars?

All depends on their schedules really, and whether or not anyone wants to extend with it.

Let the show rehearse, preview and open first.

Then speculate.

Unlikely. It says "Strictly Limited Engagement" on its website. Usually 'Strictly' shows don't extend, although I'm sure there have been exceptions.

Also, a bunch of shows end their runs a few days into January every year. So this may not be the only show disappearing then.

Of course, the other logistical problem with extensions for these shows is whether a spring tenant has a hold on that theater.

I would love for this to extend to next summer. But I know that's near impossible.

This has to be the most ridiculous premise for a thread that I've ever read.
