Why don't you just PM Margo instead?
Nothing precious, plain to see, don't make a fuss over me. Not loud, not soft, but somewhere inbetween. Say sorry, just let it be the word you mean.

Little Night Music turned a profit, but Sunday In the Park didn't.

I am sure ither people might be interested, and it wasn't a personal message. This is a BROADWAY Message Board, is it not?

Forum did as well, I think

FORUM was a major hit, running over two years and spawning a film version. I believe the last revival with Nathan Lane was also profitable.

COMPANY, A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC, and INTO THE WOODS also all turned a profit (and according to Prince, the original production of SWEENEY actually finally broke even about a decade after it closed on Broadway). I also believe that the revue SIDE BY SIDE BY SONDHEIM made a profit.

The recent revivals of ASSASSINS, PACIFIC OVERTURES, THE FROGS and FOLLIES were all produced by not-for-profits and so one cannot determine profit or loss.
