My response was to the notion that the model works. I have nothing against experimentation (at least not when it is rooted in some possible viability [and I was not saying this was inherently unviable]). I'm also not interested (right now) in engaging on the "pricing out" idea. I do think there are potential downsides to this model. If we assume that Diana would have a respectable run without the filmed version, and that the release scenario that has been announced could cut into that (or, worse yet, kill it), then I would suggest that the theatre is worse for the experiment. If Diana on film gets savaged (or even lukewarm) reviews (more likely, I think, than in stage), then I think most will agree there will be no stage show to salvage. I also think there are a lot of people in the local area who will agree with the post above that seeing it on film will be a one-and-done. Am I biased? Yeah; I don't think this has blockbuster potential, such that it can sell tickets like Hamilton can and will. Stated another way, if the show is gone from the Longacre by March because too much of the available market declines to see it live after seeing it on film, but would have hung around otherwise, then I call this a net loss. Of course, others don't seem to agree with me and have ante'd up.
