I heard this rumor last week. Glad it turned out to be true.

Is the current company moving with the show to New World Stages?
Tonya Pinkins: Then we had a "Lot's Wife" last June that was my personal favorite. I'm still trying to get them to let me sing it at some performance where we get to sing an excerpt that's gone.
Tony Kushner: You can sing it at my funeral.

Wow, has a show ever closed on Broadway and then transferred back to Off-Broadway? This is pretty great.

Would they really close a show on Broadway and move at to an off Broadway house?

The producers clearly feel there is still an audience for the show, and that there is an opportunity for further profit in a smaller house?

So un expected but I'm really happy. It looks like the prices are staying the same as Broadway $66 and $126
Would they do a lottery at NWS or Student rush?

Yes, it has happened before. In 1980, Billy Bishop Goes to War closed on Broadway at the Morosco and moved to the Lucille Lortel. In 1984, the original 'night Mother closed at the Golden and moved to the Westside Arts Theatre.
Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end: then stop.
