ars By Day, Art By Night
I'm currently sitting at my day job (well, it's more of a night job). When I'm not working on ars, I work as a live mix engineer for plays and musicals. Tonight I'm mixing for My Fair Lady. My Fair Lady is a 1956 musical based on a George Bernard Shaw play. It's one of the classics of the era, and has (according to Wikipedia) been called "the perfect musical." It's performed all over the world, it was revived on Broadway numerous times. In short: This show sells tickets. Even a halfway decent production can expect high returns (and though I may be biased, I can assure you this production far exceeds that). We sell out most performances Thursday and Friday; well in advance, for Saturday afternoon and evening shows. I am not the best with numbers. Specifically, I am bad at determining how much of something constitutes "a lot" of something. It's hard for me to contextualize large numbers of things. So being able to see a consistently-full house helps give me context for what exactly a crowd of 400 people looks like: It's enough to fill a fair-sized theatre. Today our subscriber count is hovering around 1,600. That means that if we were playing Episode 10 Act II at this theatre, we could fill it enough for Thursday, Friday, and two shows on Saturday. Basically all I have to say to that is, Whoa. And, thanks. And, let's keep going. ~Mischa
