Characters in the game are theater managers trying to produce a play. The game involves, principally, budgeting dollars though that is not the main rationale for performing the play as it is expected to (hopefully) just break even. The game uses a series of decision points followed by random event resolution. Thus, money can be spent to give better odds in subsequent stages; though money must also be budgeted for future events. The game is set up to allow for solitaire play though a mechanism does allow for multiple theater managers to play in tandem - operating, as it were, competing venues.
