I would have thought that any show now not transferring because of this was looking for an excuse because they couldn't really afford it or they knew they weren't going to recoup their costs.
If everyone gets a nice break then who gets the building back and running? What you call an excuse is a Commercial decision. There really are some funny ideas about the West End floating around here. It is a business to make money. Do you think Mamma Mia or Thriller is all about the art?
Two shows so I'm off to work.
