I assume limited run shows such as 'A Chorus of Disproval' or 'The Sunshine Boys' made a profit, where as I think we can agree Loserville definitely didn't. Yet something that seemed like a reasonable hit - Shrek for example - you'd have thought would have covered its costs and was into profit area by now.
I know that most say shows don't make a profit, but if its true for most shows I don't get how you can make a career in the business end, or why many shows want to be in the west end.

I wouldn't necessarily assume that, there must be lots of upfront fixed costs (designer's fee, building the set, director's fee, publicity & marketing) which could be harder to recoup in a short run. Also the short-run examples you mention probably have very high costs for the star actors.
