Tweetable Quotes:

"If a show does really well, it can remain in theatre forever." – Matt Picheny

"It's not like real estate where at real estate you actually have this tangible asset that you sell at the end. With these shows, it's like they close and then it's over, but hopefully, you've gotten a lot more money during the whole period." – Matt Picheny
