How about creating shows that are:
- so simple and easy to carry that they save huge amounts in travel costs, 
parking, truck rental, equipement...

-so inexpensive overall that they can be booked more often, and closer 
together, hence earning more than previous shows.

The most efficient show I've seen in this regard, was one of object 
puppetry.
The characters and props and lighting were all commonplace household objects 
and food.
It was "Ubu Sur Table", by Thé=E2tre de la Pire Esp=E8ce, which happens to be a 
local troupe.
They were the ones who conbviced me, in mere minutes into the show, that 
object Puppetry can be great!
They have had  huge success with this show, it's now available as a version 
with sign language (Ubu Sourd la Table), and another one in spanish (Ubu 
Sobre La Mesa).  Their website is:

It's all in French, but there are some pics.
