I don't think that any of the big musicals that have been produced at the Beaumont closed because the theater had made a commitment for another upcoming production. I don't think there's much question that the hope was for King and I to run longer than it did. Otherwise, I think you're basically right that it's hard for us to judge. One thing to remember is that offsetting a couple of factors that might contribute negatively to the financial side of things for LCT are a couple of big factors that work in LCT's favor: the contracts for the early part of the run and the fact that they don't pay rent, at least not in the way a commercial Broadway production does. And I think that certain other factors may work in their favor. I know we've discussed this in the past, but i don't remember if anyone knew the answer: Does LCT own a certain number of lighting instruments that are used for productions at the three Lincoln Center venues? If so, that also cuts down on the weekly running costs of shows.
