Making changes to a show

by Another Stage Mom (no login)


Another thing comes to my mind: When the original production of "Les Mis" ran on Broadway the show originally ran over three hours, and the orchestra was paid overtime for the time in excess of three hours. After several years, in an attempt to reduce costs and keep the show running, the producers cut enough material out of the show to bring it in under three hours, thus eliminating the overtime pay for the orchestra and saving some costs that allowed the show to keep running for a while longer.
