So that’s a lot to recoup on a show but it was heading into Tony award season especially when the show wasn’t a hot ticket ever. I was curious about your statement regarding capacity and it was running around 60-70% at imperial. But oddly, it didn’t go up much even after the transfer selling less seats until after it won the tony award and capacity increased to the 80s before slipping in the fall. I actually thought the show did much better at box office than it actually did—only 2 weeks in its entire run did it break $600k. Capacity may not have included comps back then.
