And Turn off the Dark needs to be sold out every day for those 10 years.

Which is not possible.

I don't think Les Mis is on Broadway anymore. West End, maybe, but Les Mis' most recent revival closed a while ago.

You got a point.

The main thing is that Turn Off The Dark getting its money back is impossible.

Should've looked at The Fantasticks as a model - cast of eight people, very minimal sets/props, orchestra consisting of two people.

Ran for forty years and the investors got back their money 240 times.

Nothing like that could get big anymore.

It's easy, mmkay?
It would have been funny and profitable if they had intentionally used no special effects and gone for pure Coconut Superpowers for the whole show.
At first I didn't realize I needed all this stuff...
Less is More, sometimes, particularly in theatre.

The current Les Mis tour doesn't even use the usual revolving stage.

^ Good. I love Les Miserables but I've never liked that part much.

^I like the revolving stage, but I think it can be a distracting effect. Also, every Les Mis production I've seen never uses hammers in the opening scene and just acts like they're there, and it works. So less can definitely be more.

What made them think that they'd make an investment on this musical? Ten years with every seat sold-out? Honestly?
Current tour actually changes the opening scene to rowing in a galley ship.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
