"I understand that I am apparently in the minority for having loathed this piece, but - personal feelings aside - who thinks there is a break even potential for this?"

The costs for a one-person show with a simple set are vastly lower than for a show with a larger cast, multiple sets, etc. Even the relatively small-cast and technically simple TORCH SONG would have had far higher running costs.

"If Mike Birbiglia isn't selling out his 'critically lauded' one-man performance piece, why would this?"

It probably won't even have to come close to selling out to break even. (And why do you put "critically lauded" in quotes re Mike Birbiglia's show?)
