My Icon "Swiney" the Swine Flu Mascot- art by me. "Grease," the fourth revival of the season, is the worst show in the history of theater and represents an unparalleled assault on Western civilization and its values. - Michael Reidel

Not. Many.

Did you see the grosses? I cannot fathom how they are still running. No way they're reaching their nut.
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."

I wish I could find a rich doctor (soul, or otherwise) to help me reach my nut.

What does Nut mean? whenever I heard it, I immediately think of semen, but what does it mean in this form. could someone explain what It means- I understand that it has to do with grosses, but what does it mean.

Under most agreements, when a show fails to reach its nut for two weeks (or is it three?), the theater ownsers can evict a show. Those weeks need not be consecutive. However, it is not automatic. A theater owner is more likely to kick a show out when they have another interested in it.

Circle in the Square mustn't have even a hint of a nibble for the space.

Which is surprising, considering the rumors of “Here Lies Love” looking to possibly move into the space.
