A stated preference discrete choice model estimates utility and WTP for different attributes of theatre productions. Previous studies assumed fixed coefficients across all theatre-goers. This study allows coefficients of attributes to vary across individuals in the population, providing information on the heterogeneity of tastes. Theatre-goers' choices are used to estimate individual-based parameters for a person's tastes in theatre productions. The analysis reveals the heterogeneity of tastes for different types of plays and ticket price; and the significance of 'reviews' by critics and 'word of mouth' opinions as important variables determining choice.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/44533||ISSN:||0036-9292||DOI:||10.1111/j.1467-9485.2011.00551.x||Source:||Scottish Journal of Political Economy[ISSN 0036-9292],v. 58, p. 378-395|
