But, Mike, when it comes to the finances of Broadway – you know, weekly grosses, recoupment, profits, all that boring stuff – your sources are playing you for a sucker, a patsy, a chump.
And I hate to see this, since a lot of your readers know how to read the numbers and realize how badly you’re being had.
