|With the understanding (that I have expressed elsewhere in this thread that all of this is a tangent to the only pending issue (viz., that this show cannot go forward without some number of 802 musicians), and with respect, I feel something has blinded you to the actual situation here. This is not about suspension of belief, it is about storytelling. I am guessing you have not seen the show, but having live musicians playing unproduced karaoke tracks does not "provide the exact same effect" for the same reason that recorded and produced music in a typical musical doesn't. (You did land on one obvious aspect of the resolution: as I mentioned previously, the players at the end of the show will obviously need to be or become AFM members and that constitutes a base on which an agreement can be reached. That's non-negotiable.) It's not like this show has no track record. It was done downtown for several months and was nominated for and won a ton of awards as well as being very well reviewed. No one complained that they were "used to, and expect[ed] live musicians." The only thing that has changed here is the venue. Whether people would walk out is a bizarre criteria. Most of us don't walk out of shows even when we intensely dislike them.
I think we have beaten this into the ground but to me there is no question that there is not going to be a live orchestra playing the karaoke tracks. And I am pretty sure 802 is not going to demand 19 walkers or anywhere near that. I hope we can all refocus on the actual issue because this one isn't as much fun anymore. :-)
