Money: Budgets for musicals are larger than any other form of theatre. This is due to the audience's expectation of spectacular scenery and gorgeous costumes, as well as the salaries paid to large casts and a full orchestra. Typically, the largest single expense is for scenic elements, followed closely by advertising. A theatre budget is composed of two parts. The first is the nut, or pre-production budget. This is the amount of money required to bring a show from the idea phase to opening night. The second part is the maintenance, or running budget. This is the amount of money needed to keep a show open from week to week. Large production musicals like Showboat and Ragtime usually have to gross in excess of $400,000 per week in order to maintain profitability. The following chart shows the allocation of money for the pre-production budget of the Los Angeles production of Ragtime. The show opened in June 1997 and closed in 1998.

Let me repeat myself (from Film600 and script.vtheatre.net):

Where teaching and studying (research) meet --

Theme-thought, according to different playwrights (Shakespeare, Ibsen, Strindberg, Chekhov and so on) and directors (Fellini, Kurosawa, Tarkovsky, Bergman pages).

Connections with other themes (list): family, gender and sex...

Finally, my own practical investigations: shows.vtheatre.net (only recently I began to make themes pages, Don Juan 2003, for example).

And the nonfiction (writing), of course: HIM, Father-Russia, PostAmeriKa, Self, POV, Tech (gatepages are in WRITE directory).

Yeah, yeah, there is more -- "philo" pages, metaphysics: in theatre theory directory, for instance (topics-bar: space, time and etc.)
Plus, Virtual Theatre and Book of Spectator!

Web? Oh, this is just medium. Like stage, screen, writing...

Notes

Phantom Phacts: "A more recent example of a successful musical is Phantom of the Opera which continues its long Broadway run. As indicated above, much of the profit from a musical comes from its cloned companies. Once it has become obvious that a musical is going to be a hit, plans are made to duplicate the production. Copies of the sets and costumes are ordered, and auditions are announced for a new cast. In the case of Phantom, it was such a smash hit in London that New Yorkers eagerly bought $18 million worth of advance tickets before the American clone opened there in 1988. With opening costs of $8.5 million it was paid for before even opening its doors! Its producer, British impresario Cameron Mackintosh, quickly provided a Los Angeles company which opened in 1989, as well as two national touring companies. The L.A. company broke the local record with $15 million in advance sales, most of which came in before the box office was even open. Sales from "The Phantom Collection" of souvenirs (including a $23 glow in the dark T-shirt) have brought in millions alone. The show was also a windfall for Los Angeles' Center Theatre Group/Ahmanson, which simply moved its entire season to another theatre and rented their house to the Brits. During the three years of Phantom's L.A. run, CTG/Ahmanson's reserve fund swelled from $1.5 million to nearly $12 million from their 5% share of the box office take. A similar arrangement was made for a subsequent Mackintosh show, Miss Saigon.

Phantom has a company of 134 comprised of 36 actors, 60 crew members, 30 musicians, and a staff of eight. There are 120 wigs, 260 costumes, 165 trap doors in the stage, 500 lighting instruments, and 102 candles. The famous chandelier has 30,000 beads and took six months to construct, and 5,600 pounds of dry ice are used each week. The wireless microphones that the performers wear use up about 20,000 AAA batteries per year."
