The Sunday Giveaway: Two tickets to Blank! the Musical off Broadway!

I love me some improv. Some of my most jaw dropping moments in decades of theater going weren’t watching the helicopter take off in Saigon, or the entire Sunset Boulevard house rise like the Ghost of Claudius . . . nope, some of the most thrilling moments have been watching the country’s most skilled improv performers like The Nuclear Family and Baby Wants Candy blow my mind with their ability to make @#%$ up on the spot. There’s nothing cooler or more creative (it’s why I used improv to create The Awesome 80s Prom, Gettin’ The Band Back Together and the web series I’m shooting as I type). You know what …

Who won Seth Rudetsky’s Broadway Diary Volume #1?

Well, I think we got enough entries into this week’s giveaway to produce The Producer’s Perspective Broadway Diary Volume #1 – 10!

The Sunday Giveaway: An Autographed Copy of Seth’s Broadway Diary by Seth Rudetsky!

I first met Seth Rudetsky back when Bill Clinton was President, when he and I were working on the Broadway revival of Grease. You know, the one where the theater was painted pink and everyone from Brooke Shields to the Olympic Gymnast Dominique Dawes made an appearance (oh, and Billy Porter played Teen Angel!). Since then Seth has written for Rosie O’Donnell’s talk show, hosted a Sirius radio show, written an off Broadway Disaster musical, and deconstructed lots of diva performances in his Chatterbox. And now, he wrote a book? What’s cool about the book is that it’s actually like a …

Who won the tickets to see One In A Million Off Broadway?

If I had a million dollars . . . (sounds like a song, right?  oh wait.) I loved reading your lotto-infused dreams in this week’s giveaway.  Oh man, to have those country houses, those car & drivers, those premium tickets to The Book of Mormon. I hope you all win.  Twice.  (I just bought a lotto subscription myself – you never know, that’s what the commercial says, right?) But who won this week’s giveaway? That would be . . . Elaine! Congrats, Elaine.  Email me and we’ll set up your seats.  Unless, of course, you’ve won the lottery since you …

The Sunday Giveaway: Two tickets to One in a Million Off Broadway!

There’s a little known musical that has been growing up over the past couple of years, that I’ve had the privilege of observing very closely, because the Producer and Author is a consultation client of mine. The show, entitled One in a Million began its life several years ago in a galaxy far, far away . . . Brooklyn. Ok, that was a joke (or an attempt at one), but it’s true, isn’t it?  Doesn’t it feel like any theatrical production that isn’t on the island of Manhattan is in Sri Lanka, or on the moon?  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve …
