A friend of mine works a lot with Camerons office. For 2 or 3 days solid after the announcement last week that 'Phantom' would close for 3 days /4 performances to install a new sound system -the box office went a little crazy. It took in many 1000s more than it was normally doing because a great number of people panicked and booked thinking the show was finally closing.
Come on people, its not like they had to read the small print or anything!
She was quick to say that under no circumstances would people get a refund if they were to say they booked thinking it was closing.

Maybe it would be shrewd of Camerons and Co to invest in a new sound system before every new booking period!

I can now see the Majestic getting a urgent re-wire!

I wouldn't be shocked to hear that they are going to bring the same sound system to Broadway.

In the article I read about it it said that the sound system that they are going to install in London is the same sound system that they have in the Vegas production. It wouldn't shock me to hear that they are going to put the same sound system in on Broadway and have all 3 major open runs of the show have the same sound system.

When I first read the title of the thread my reaction was a sarcastic "its going to close in London...for 3 performances."

I assume that if someone bought tickets in advance for one of the performances that are now going to be canceled I assume that they will be able to change tickets for another night. No?
