If everyone in this play is above title (including the new guy) what would the refund policy be if one actor is out?
"are you two going to renew your vows"? "Why, did they expire??"

With it's limited engagement, one would hope that none of these "veteran" actors (other than the "new guy") would miss a performance… and if one of them were to miss a performance, I'd assume that the refund policy would remain the same as it always has been.

Assuming no one is going to see "the new guy," in particular, than if he missed a performance it wouldn't be an issue. And assuming the monstrous ticket prices already in-state for this star-studded machine weren't high enough, I would guess that if ONE of these six or seven actors were to be out the show would not take as large of a hit as one would think.

With that said, I don't think is it likely we will be hearing about many understudy slips at this one. Although, you never know!

The engagement will likely be sold out. If an actor above the title is out of the show and you want a refund, you'll probably get it because the box office can easily sell that ticket to the cancellation line.
"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."
--Aristotle
