Is this really the only cost cutting measure available to the Public? I ask not out of incredulity, but sheer ignorance. I fully admit that.
Oskar Eustis, artistic director of the Public, said in an interview on Wednesday that $600,000 was a fairly typical price tag for a full production there, a cost that was shared by the two companies. He said that he was disappointed by LAByrinth’s departure, but that the Public planned to continue collaborating with the company on some shows in the future.
