I agree with what you’re saying, but a lease of a building, depending upon the terms, can be very much like buying it. If a facility has high costs of operation, accessibility issues, etc., those issues don’t go away by leasing. You’re just dealing with them as long as your lease runs. And I’ve said that I don’t doubt they have a great show. I will add however, that other Branson shows spend some time on the road— they draw more people there in “one-off” concerts. But those bigger road crowds don’t translate to the same size crowds in Branson. It’s pretty obvious that competing with a zillion other shows here for a full season takes a chunk out of every show’s crowd, regardless of the quality. Not a reflection of show quality, just a fact. Add in high costs, etc., at that venue—- that’s why I express doubts.
