The Sunday Giveaway: Two tickets to The Visit on Broadway!

Another week and another big Broadway giveaway here at The Producer’s Perspective! And this one is for a show that I’m producing!  Yep, this week we’re giving away two tickets to The Visit!  (Click here to read my original announcement about why I decided to produce the show.)

We’re gettin’ our butts kicked so badly, it’s embarrassing.

A headline on my daily lunch time read, Playbill.com, captured my attention recently.  It screamed . . . “Schedule of Upcoming Live Theatre Broadcasts in Movie Theatres and on Television”. I squealed like a 7 year old who just got the new Elsa doll when I read it.  Of course, I wondered what shows I could catch at my local cineplex, but more importantly I started thinking about the shows I could recommend to my Mom and Dad who live out in suburban land, hours away from New York City.  This was a chance for them to get a taste of Broadway …
