This is a play I have actually seen, with 3 lady friends, out of the 4 of us, it was noted that I jumped the most.

Anyway I digress, I am curious if this would work on Broadway, surely this would be worth a punt, in Broadway smaller houses, such as the Helen Hayes or Circle in the Square or even in a off Broadway house, such as the New World Stages/

I am speaking with no knowledge here, but I assume the weekly nut would be small, I guess the production would not cost more than $100k a week to put on, as the staging, costumes or lighting is not elaborate and the wage bill would be tiny as there are only 6 actors in the production and 3 of those are cover.

I could see this having some appeal with our American friends, so surely this would be worth a go, what do you think?

Other then the fact that it ran at the Minatta Lane Theatre, no.

It ran just a matter of months Off Broadway.
English thrillers do not fare well on the Great White Way.
'The Mousetrap' has never been transfered to New York for fear of failure. 45% of its UK audience is American tourists.
'The Mousetrap' is Canada's longest running show having closed in 2004 after 27 years.
