It's true that it had been a long time since a traditional Ziegfeld kind of follies show had been done on Broadway, but nostalgia and "No, No, Nanette" hit very big that same year. Did tired businesmen generally do a lot of research when picking out a show back then besides seeing if it's a musical, comedy, or drama, who's in it and who wrote it? Maybe some idea of what it's about, though your "a reunion of former showgirls returning to see their theatre one last time before it comes down" still has "showgirls" as the subject, and perhaps they might be deliriously happy to reunite again? The tone of the piece might not have been conveyed unless they read reviews and/or actually went to see the piece to see how multi-layered it is.
