The job of the theater manager has always been an intricate part of the theatrical community. This how-to guide covers a wide variety of topics, including budgeting theater costs, gross potentials and ticket prices, show contracts, settlements, and emergency and security procedures. A sample budget, building forms, and show and performance forms are included. Interviews with theater managers reveal how to devise creative solutions when resources are inadequate or nonexistent. Although most of the experiences in this book relate to commercial theater, many can be applied to not-for-profit theater and facility management.
