Does anyone know how costs breakdown for a hit show.
What do I mean ?
I am making these figures up but you will get the idea. If anyone knows what the actual figurees are I am sure we would all be intrigued!
Lets suppose a show has a sell out audience of 1000 punters each paying an average of £50.
That is income of £50,000 per show.
Eight shows a week makes £400,000.
And lets say it runs for a year which makes £20.8m.
My question is, on average, where does the money go.
What %age would go on the theatre hire, musicians, backstage wages, cast wages, writer, producer etc etc.
So lets say this was Les Mis how much of that £20.8m goes into Cameron Macs pocket.
Obviously this varies from show to show but is there a sort of ballpark figure that impressarios would work on and try to achieve.
