New BCPA reports, you expected better?

By: Diane Benjamin

For a change I didn’t have to FOIA the reports.

New reports have been posted to the City website, these represent the beginning of a new season. They aren’t off to a good start if you believe entertainment shouldn’t be subsidized by people who can’t afford to attend:

Loss: $13,792.88

Performance Fee not available

Loss: $16,385.93

Performance Fee not available

Loss: $2,938.30

Total lost to date: $33,955.44

(Make sure to look at the attendance numbers)

    1. What person would book a performance that loses money? Do they even negotiate with the artist or the agent/agency? $18000 for an event that sold $8000 in tickets?? That’s $39 per ticket. Raise the price to at least double that, and pay the artist half of his/her fee and MAKE MONEY!! If not, forget it.

      Zero Mostel & Gene Wilder would love to be The Producers at BCPA!!

  1. Actuallly loses is likely higher. Doesn’t include water cost for toilets being flushed, toilet paper, cleaning, building heating/cooling, etc. Dismal at best. A local high school probably turns more profit from concessions during football games and higher attendance.

  2. They should take the same approach they have apparently taken at the coliseum, just don’t book anything and cut your losses.

    Is it still Grossinger or has that expired?
