Well... I get the metaphor but to me a metaphor is representative of something and I feel like in this context it is in the nature of a projection I am hopeful does not come about. We shall see, obviously, but I hope that what we are doing is learning to live with covid (because we have no alternative) and that requiring vaccines and masks to be around people is a part of that. I am a pessimist about the financial prospects of the Broadway season in general, but an optimist that we can have live theatre if we are smart about it. I think the metaphor assumes the point to be proven so while it may be strong in one sense it is weak in another. IMHO, of course.
