I'd rather polka. The model was pre 1973, when theatre owners and producers were in a sense partners, instead of the producer just being a tenant paying 100% plus of all the theater owners costs - including property taxes. It was a model,. because if your show wasnt selling, the theatre owner needed another show. Today, as long as there is a tenant willing to pay their bills every week, a show can stay until the theatre owner finds something else they think might be a hit, if the producer is willing to keep writing checks. So the business model has changed - drastically. IMHO not for the better, for producers. For theatre owners, most definitely for the better. Keep something in your venue - say Morrissey - and the cash keeps flowing your way.
