Live Action Role Playing also has these elements, and I've been pleasantly surprised just how many other weirdos want to dress up and feign being blood sucking fiends, for instance.

It is good to keep the readers wanting more... i.e. the #1 time. It isn't just the events. It is the telling that truly makes the difference.

Is that still actually from a Phantom production? I'd have guessed Masque of the Red Death.

Apparently it's the Phantom playing Death in a production of The Masque of the Red Death within a 1925 silent movie production of The Phantom of the Opera.

Um. You were tongue-in-cheek about the Phantom of the Opera, right? Sorry, i have to ask, because there are very confused people out there that think the Phantom's obsessive stalking of Christine is "romantic" and that the Phantom is sooo misunderstood. Yeah, no. I've read the book; he's an obsessive, controlling sociopath to Run Away From Really Fast. NOT a love interest.

James is known for deadpan humor – and is quite definitely not known for that kind of confusion.

With regards to audience size: My choral conductor has told us of going to choral conventions and discussing audience attendance with other conductors. "We only had 500 people at our concert!" our conductor wails. Looks of astonishment from the other conductors. "You have 500 people come to your concerts?!" "Yes, and we have a venue of 2500 seats to fill!"

Is the subgenre of 'theatrical productions with robots' wide enough to exist as a thing? It's been done occasionally. Offhand I remember the Telzey Amberdon story involving androids, which in classic SF style introduced a world-changing new technology that would be forgotten in later stories.
