    a theatrical production

    8-5)When you watch a theatrical production, you engage in something called the "willing suspension of disbelief." That is, you know very well in your conscious mind that everything that is happening on the stage is not real.

    Doesn't it have to be "theatrical product"? "production" is an abstract noun meaning the process of making something.

    Re: a theatrical production

    No. A product is a physical item, one you can pick up and is usually something manufactured and then sold. "Production" is the correct word for a theatrical performance and all it entails.

    See definition 5c here.

    I'm sure that in your time on this forum you have seen how many times we recommend - had you searched that, you would have found multiple definitions showing that "production" was correctly used.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
