The article focuses on theatrical productions on Broadway in New York City which may also be produced in London, England. The import of such productions has slowed due to the global recession, and the fact that several highly successful productions on Broadway in 2008-2009 were originally produced in England. The London production of "Spring Awakening", a hit in New York, was not a financial success.
