Well found Ryan. There are two interesting clips that have just been uploaded. A few days ago. Probably as a result of our conversations in the other "Confidence Man" thread.

I have to agree with what you say about achieving things on stage without an enormous budget. Yesterday I watched a documentary about Michael Crawford's "EFX" show from 1996. It was produced at the MGM Las Vegas and cost 70 million dollars. The documentary reminded me of what is happening with "Spider-Man" now.

Throwing huge amounts of money at shows doesn't necessarily make them great and sometimes a carefully thought out low budget show can actually be better.

I am guessing that the 1986 production which Steve Margoshes worked on was also low budget. Do you have any comments about that production?
