Best Answer

As long as it can. Producers choose to shut down there show if they aren't selling enough tickets or if they get horrible reviews. Many shows don't last more than a year, and you are considered lucky if your show lasts 3 years or more. Most don't make back the original investment.

Is there a difference between a Musical and a Broadway Musical?

There is but at the same time there isn't. It is slighlty confusing but just try to understand this: When A musical first comes (If it starts on Broadway st N.Y.C) then it is a Broadway Musical. But once it goes on tour to everywhere (London,States,Canada) Then it is considered "Off-Broadway". All that means is it ONCE was on Broadway and now is touring, or is done performing for good. If it doesn't start on Broadway st N.Y.C it is just considered a "musical" and can never be a "Broadway musical" or a "Off-Broadway musical." But Broadway musicals and Off-Broadway musicals are still musicals, so it just depends on weather or not you are very picky in arts or not.
