In this paper some of the problems and prospects in studying the role of quality in demand for the theatre have been discussed. A set of criteria for evaluating quality judgments in the performing arts has been proposed, and in a limited way some of these criteria have been used in estimating demand and utility functions. Although results are tentative and qualified, they do confirm unambiguously the importance of qualitative variables in influencing both demand and supply decisions in the performing arts.
