Shows that have been stopped while in previews are also considered to be cancelled shows as well, although is a is a much rarer phenomenon. It is rare when a Broadway show gets cancelled, but when it happens it is usually for good reason. The most common reason Broadway shows are canceled is because the show did not meet artistic or creative expectations when it finally got onto a Broadway stage for a rehearsal. In this most common case, the show producers took a second look at the show and changed their minds deciding to pull their creative and financial support, even though the show made through the tough Broadway production phase. Without any money from the producers, a Broadway show may be forced to be canceled as they cannot pay their actors or their theatre landlords. Other investors are unlikely to step in as no one would want to produce a bad Broadway production. In other Broadway show cancellation scenarios, key actors or actresses have done something unacceptable in the public eye and hurt the show’s marketing image. This can make the show analysts think that their mistake will drastically decrease the ticket sales of the show and will decide to cancel it before it sees the light of day. Other times, the creatives have been just too difficult to work with due to their large egos and ongoing demands. These scenarios create production nightmares for the staff of the show and force them to quit before losing face or money.
