Subject: Re: PUPT: A Question of Scale..How small is too small?


While I don't think your current scale is too small, perhaps your audience is too big?  When I have seen toy theatre, it's usually has an audience between 20 & 30 people. The performances often run between 10 minutes to 1 hr long, so you can easily do more than 1 show a night if you are concerned about revenue.

If you really have your heart set on an audience of 60 & can't break it up into 2 performaces, you might want to reconsider your scale.  I have been to performances where it's a struggle to see, even with binoculars.

 When I pay $15 for a performance that I can't see, I do feel ripped off & I'm less likely to see that artist's work again, imho.

Again, this is just from my experience.
