I have been shooting the latest performance using Nikon D5 and my Fuji X-E2. Let me just start by jumping to the end for you. I wish I could blend the two cameras and then I would be happy.

In theater they often dim the lights to where you need a much higher ISO.

The Fuji images put side by side the Nikon D5 were very acceptable. As long as the actors were not running around then they were excellent.
The main downside of the Fuji is the focus didn't lock in as fast as the Nikon D5. If it went out of focus it would hunt.
Then Nikon D5 was extremely quick with focus.
If I could have made the camera as quiet as the Fuji I would have never shot the Fuji. In live theatre you don't want to draw attention to yourself and distract from the performance because of the camera.
I chose to shoot more with the Fuji based on sound of the camera more than anything else.
