I think:
a) Its a good idea if it helps reduce town center crime, as well as getting money for troupes
b) Its incredibly sad as it really does mean people commit a lot of crimes out of sheer boredom, rather than nessesity.

And judging by the fact that they were paid rather than just there ordinarily or busking that there would be sessions rather than just a willy nilly kind of arrangement.
