I don't get how Latinologues can extend its run when it's making less than $70,000.00 a week. I grant you their running costs must be lower than most shows but, come on . . . how can they stay in business??
The meat is always leaner on somebody else's dinner plate!

Maybe they care more about the show and how it is reaching andaudience (no matter how small) than they care about how much moolah they're making.

Some people produce shows to get their voice heard--not just to make the big bucks.

I still don't see why this show's run was extended, it's making app. 35% attendance since it opened. According to the Broadway.com review, it does seem to fall in so many stereotypes, being Hispanic myself I didn't like some of the "jokes" the Broadway.com critic mentioned.
"Some people can thrive and bloom living life in a living room, that's perfect for some people of one hundred and five. But I at least gotta try, when I think of all the sights that I gotta see, all the places I gotta play, all the things that I gotta be at"
