Why would 42nd Street post a closing notice for January?

It's only on Broadway.com... Is it a joke? It makes no sense to me.

To drive the tourists and groups who haven't seen it that it's the last spring/summer/fall for them to see it, and to drive sales. Long-running shows can fall victim to the "I'll see it next year when I come back to New York" syndrome.

What could go into the desirable Ford Center next? Maybe Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Ken Mandelbaum once reported that was the Broadway house producers of the hit London musical were eyeing and the show has been announced for a Spring 2005 Broadway berth, so it is feasible that the car will fly on 42nd Street.

They could also possibly be trying to improve attendence so that if a theatre big enough becomes available they can transfer to it, showing theatre owners hey look we are still selling. Ford center has become a hot theatre for producers and maybe 42nd street contract expires then, and chitty looks to be going there. who knows i thought i would run a little longer then 2005, but who knows? we can only speculate.

At least they posted it early enough so that people like me, who only get to the city in the summer, can see it.

I think 42nd Street will be running its course. I don't think the grosses are too high on this lately. It is a good show. But it was only revived before in the 80's. It needs a 20 year break from now on.

It is a wonderful production and everyone should go and see it.
I saw it a few weeks ago and it blew me away.
