* ''Theatre/TheDrowsyChaperone'' is meant to be performed without an intermission, despite the [[ShowWithinAShow]] that it is about being a two-act musical. However, some productions do choose to add an intermission anyway, usually after the song "Toledo Surprise".

** The three-act ''Theatre/OurTown'' usually follows the same format as Earnest, as does Thorton Wilder's other famous work ''Theatre/TheSkinOfOurTeeth''. However, ''Theatre/TheMatchmaker'' is in four acts, and its [[AdaptationDisplacement much better-known adaptation]], ''Theatre/HelloDolly'', is in two.

* ''Theatre/{{Follies}}'' was originally presented in one act because an intermission would probably make an awkward interruption in the action. The awkward interruption is now usual.

* Creator/CirqueDuSoleil tours are usually two act affairs (two-and-a-half hours with intermission), but their non-touring productions (the various Las Vegas shows, ''Theatre/LaNouba'', etc.) usually have runtimes of 90 to 105 minutes with no intermission. This allows for two performances a night/ten performances a week and doesn't try the patience of audiences who would also like to gamble, etc. When the tours ''Theatre/NouvelleExperience'' and ''Theatre/{{Alegria}}'' were adapted for casinos, they lost their intermissions and at least one acrobatic setpiece in order to achieve a 90-minute runtime. In fact, editing "legit" shows has long been common practice in Las Vegas; ''ThePhantomOfTheOpera'', ''Theatre/AvenueQ'', ''{{Spamalot}}'', and ''Film/TheProducers'' were all cut to 90-or-so minutes either when they opened or later in the run, dropping their intermissions among other things.
