Got all that? Good! Now, please explain to me how that would be a waste of a theatre.
As long as there is an audience for a production, it is discourteous and inaccurate to say it is a waste of a theatre. There's a lot more of the General Public than there are of us message board denizens, so please don't be too shocked when I tell you that theatre is not being produced exclusively for and with high hopes of pleasing exclusively us.
Indeed - some people seem to be channelling Michael Billington's latest blog in which he fulminates against the wrong sort of tickets being sold
If every theatre had a show I wanted to see, I wouldn't be able to afford it anyway so what would be the point?
