Even our Paleolithic forebears engaged in story-telling and music-making; bone flutes more than 35, 000 years old have been found. That these instincts evolved into the works of Euripides and Shakespeare, Bach and Beethoven, is one of civilizations great achievements. Yet performing arts companies today, which present both classic and contemporary works for live audiences, face business challenges at least as great as any other industry. There are about 9, 000 performing arts companies in America, generating about 14 billion in revenue according to the last economic census (2007).

Yet performing arts companies today, which present both classic and contemporary works for live audiences, face business challenges at least as great as any other industry. There are about 9,000 performing arts companies in America, generating about $14 billion in revenue according to the last economic census (2007).The industry is fragmented: 77% of the companies have revenues of less than $1 million, only 3% exceed $10 million, and the 20 largest companies account for only 20% of industry revenue.
