although there are still a few who have confirmed a precise launch date.
A program rich in variety and quality that hopes to find answers within a summer season that in its vespers is pulsing between the contrasts: it is very promising because the new currency parity encourages domestic tourism. But it is also true that inflation and the fall in purchasing power will leave many potential travelers without holidays or a limited format, some days and very careful when spending.
That is why some variants and proposals that try to bring the income within reach of the family budget are already foreseen. For example, with values that are lower than those that this year have been paid (and still paid for) at salons and even innovative promotions, as will some exceptionally discounted work for children under 17 years of age. In addition, there will be a good number of tourist shows.
With more than 40 Marathon seasons, a great analyst of the sector but above all innovative before the most difficult conjunctures, theater entrepreneur Carlos Rottemberg (who tomorrow will be declared a remarkable personality of the culture in the Legislature of Buenos Aires) has among his customs the baptize each season with a qualifier. For what comes will define as "countercurrent." "There is a counterpoint between the drop in consumption in all commercial activities and the expectation generated by the dollar price for a greater national tourist flow," he explains. The former called it "oar" due to the support of the government of Buenos Aires, 2016/17 was for him "cautious" and the previous "delayed" by the delays that implied the change of national and provincial government.
In its theaters, there will be many of the best that will have the billboard Marplatense and much of the most applauded that have had the tables of Buenos Aires throughout this year. The programming of your rooms is full of news and gestures in search of the best results. For the cast and producers and also for the viewer.
Sugar, with Laurita Fernández, will arrive at Neptune, an expensive setting that will force the small Bristol room to be sacrificed to serve as a backroom and because of the risk of sound leakage from the hit musical. For Lido, which completes the Santa Fe complex almost San Martin, is still expected to confirm another title.
On the other hand,
Jets He will go to America with a management model "made in Rottemberg" that producers and cast accepted without hesitation. With an ingenious and visual profile to enjoy with the family, this comedy will seek adults and children with a maximum entrance fee of 600 pesos (equal to the previous season and 25% lower than this winter in the Capital) and another 200 for minors, including adolescents up to 17 years. "In this way, a family of four goes with 1600, and without obligation to go older, two children of 16 years can go to the theater for 400 pesos in total," he says.
Another special feature is the contract with Gustavo Yankelevich, producer of
Sugar. "We set up your risk and my theater does not get its percentage, and should pay its costs," confirms Rottemberg in a pure bet confidence. They will only receive income if all expenses are covered, in such a way that an ordinary share will be formed that will share the profits equally. Then all your chips and possibility of revenue are deposited in a very good performance of the box office which, moreover, will depend on adjusted values. Of the 950 pesos that were paid for the same work in Buenos Aires, it goes for tickets here from 700 to 900.
"We are looking for the friendliest price," Rottemberg says, convinced that the industry is working for the middle class, the main theatrical client. In percentage terms, it is understood that it should be adjusted in percentages closer to the parity agreements than to the extreme of inflation.
