“The hunger of audiences for our show continues unabated.In a statement,” said producer Kate Horton in a statement. “We are grateful to Hugh and Sutton and our entire glorious company for agreeing to add these additional 16 performances. The joy they bring to audiences night after night is incredible to witness and we know this The Music Man will be remembered long after the final curtain comes down. If we could go on forever, we would”
The production, which routinely tops the Broadway roster in weekly grosses, frequently grossing around $3 million a year into its run, was originally scheduled to close Jan. 1 with the departure of Jackman.

The two-week extension was announced today by producers Barry Diller, David Geffen and Kate Horton.
