"was it worth leaving the house to see it" ... how depressing to value the comfort of not going outside your home SO much that this could be the standard by which to judge Broadway productions, implying there so MANY that wouldn't make that qualification.

I see a LOT of broadway productions, and despite my often harsh opinions, there aren't many I thought were not worth leaving my house to have the experience of watching.

Judging it by time spent is something I often do, but mainly in circumstances where my time is very limited or when seeing it was choice between that and something else I couldn't do another time soon.

Being fairly poor, relatively speaking, I almost always pre-judge things on if it's going to be / was worth the money spent, however I think I average 1 in 50 shows I spent more than $75 on, and probably more realistically 1 in 100 i spend more than $50, so the pre-judgement comes in "can I see this show somehow for under 50, or under 75?". If not, it's likely I won't put myself in the position to have to assess if it was worth $140+, because I almost never can or will pay that.
