Originally scheduled to close on July 31, 2011. Due to enthusiastic reviews and sales, the limited run was extended into January 2012. The show was extended a second time into April 7, 2012. On September 19, 2011, the production was extened for a third time from April 7 to April 29. On January 18, 2012 it was announced that the show would extend for a fourth time to September 9. However, low ticket sales forced Roundabout to announce a closing date of August 5, however on June 26, Roundabout moved the closing date to July 8 because ticket sales had not increased enough to keep the production running.
Before Sutton Foster was cast as Reno, the two actresses most commonly linked to the role were Reba McEntire and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
