didn't Billy just get the audience award at the Oliviers?
Which was probably voted for by a few thousand people - don't overestimate the Oliviers, they don't have anything like the impact of the Tony Awards.  And a lot of the people who voted for the audience award might not be regular theatre goers, or regular returnees to the same show, but those who've seen Billy Elliot once or twice and liked it.  That doesn't keep a show in business.

Of course not, but it can help them with their advertising.
If I stay awake, it must be good.

  Why drag up an old thread then not read it?  It was A Chorus Line, which was clearly stated earlier in the thread, and also Rock of Ages.

I thought they were either being comical or were implying another show is closing? I recon it's Rent
