there is not and I never suggested there was. My issue was with the misappropriation of hit/miss, terms that go back decades or maybe longer and actually mean something. I am all for having words that mean artistic and cultural success (especially because I think most financial successes on Broadway are artistic if not cultural failures). But if you want to be non-binary in your analysis, then you have to also know that there are lots of different kinds of theatre people and they view success or failure differently.

Next: "Flop" does not equal "Miss", which is why we're asking for more words than just Hit and Flop - Singapore/Fling 06:04 pm EDT 10/12/21
