|Did you mean “end on”, which isn’t really a term we have over here? LCT3 is a flexible space in that they can remove the wings and open the full stage up to the audience, but the seating is fixed, the stage is raised, and every show I’ve seen there* has used the prosc arch.
As for MFL, it seemed to be more of a soft hit, which your math supports, but the tour is still out selling tickets, and as always, you can’t assess the monetary success of a non-profit run purely on tickets, because there are other revenue streams.
Half of the value of these various hits is to burnish the Lincoln Center brand and spread the Lincoln Center gospel. With my fair Lady, you have to ask not just how many tickets they sold, but how much money they raised on the back of the show’s existence.
*War, Pass Over, that underground bunker Zoe Kazan play, In the Green, and The Nosebleed… I don’t think there were any more.
