The Sunday Giveaway: A Free Pass to the Commercial Theater Institute’s Three Day Intensive worth $460!

There aren’t enough training programs for people who are interested in the business of Broadway.  Honestly, that’s why I started this blog and teach  seminars, and write books, because I remember what it was like when I was coming up and I wanted craved information about how to produce on Broadway or invest in Broadway or manage on Broadway and more. Back then, there was only one thing someone like me could do. And that was attend the Commercial Theater Institute’s three day weekend intensive.  The Three Day featured all of Broadway’s most powerful players speaking on all sorts of panels. …

I bring this up only because in this week’s giveaway, you gave me (and anyone who reads the entries) some great ideas for some new ones.  Personally, I’d love to see Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jonathan Larson working on a song together.  Wouldn’t that be something?

Who won the tickets to Hand to God on Broadway?

When I come up with questions for the Sunday Giveaway, I usually go for something fun or for something that I can learn from. And this week, your giveaway answers were both. I asked what the most shocking thing you’ve seen on stage was, and I got everything from full frontal puppet nudity to spewing blood in horror spoofs to domestic violence and more.  There’s no question that taking the audience by surprise and shaking them to the core, whether for laughs or for tears, makes for a memorable performance and instant word of mouth.  But there’s a fine line between when …

The Sunday Giveaway: Two tickets to Hand to God on Broadway!

Here’s an interesting bit of trivia:  Avenue Q and Book of Mormon were two of the “dirtiest” shows Broadway had ever seen when they opened up on the Great White Way. Both won the Tony Award for Best Musical. What does that tell ya? Well, it tells you that Hand to God is a show to watch this season.  Cuz it’s a dirty mother @#$^%#$. One of you will be watching that show for free, cuz we’ve got two tickets to give away!  Woo-hoo! If you haven’t heard about the foul-mouthed puppet that stars in Hand to God then, well, as that puppet might say, …
