Thank you for your interest in investing in Broadway shows with my company.
Broadway investing, while without a doubt a high risk investment, can be a fun, fulfilling and yes, profitable experience. I often call investing in Broadway shows, “The riskiest investment you’ll love to make.”
All of our current and previous investors get first priority on any new Davenport Theatrical projects. However, occasionally, we do allow new qualified investors to invest.

“Investing with Ken and the Davenport Theatrical team has been a wonderful way to join and financially support the theatrical community. Ken and his team are open, welcoming, feedback and dialogue-seeking professionals; Financial information flows freely, issues are discussed openly and honestly; You often decide from a menu of available investment opportunities; and while you and you alone are responsible to do your own homework and make you own investment decisions, you can always see the intelligent thought process and opportunity-capturing gears grinding away behind the scenes at Davenport. I’ve invested with Davenport on several shows and their positive attitude and sheer determination to conquer the Broadway Market rival that of any producer today on or off Broadway today.” – Doug Marino
“Upon my retirement from the active practice of law as an attorney and judge in Minnesota, my wife and I purchased a condo near the NYC theatre district, so that we could pursue our life- long love for the Broadway theatre. I was first attracted to the idea of investing in theatre when I read about Ken Davenport’s public funding of the 40th Anniversary Revival of Godspell. My wife and I met with Ken and were impressed by his theatre experience, passion for the project and genuine humility. We decided to take the plunge and invest in Godspell. While the show never recouped, our involvement it was one of the most memorable experiences of our lives.
Since Godspell, we have invested in five more of Ken’s shows with the last one being the recent revival of Spring Awakening, with me as a co-producer “above the title.” Some have been financially successful and some have not. Each, however, has been a labor of love that has fed our passion for the theatre.
In my mind Ken has three attributes that make him a great lead producer. First, he has a general business knowledge that would make him successful in any area of commerce. Second, he possesses knowledge of the theatre both as an institution and as an everyday business. He learned the latter “from the bottom up” as an administrative assistant, company manager and general manager. This enables him to approach a project, both seeing the “big picture” and keeping an eye on the “bottom line.” Third, he has a work ethic and warm demeanor that translate into a very personal relationship with each of his investors. Phone calls and emails are responded to promptly, and questions are answered patiently and thoroughly.
In conclusion, there are many lead producers in the theatre business that would be more than happy to take our money. In fact, we have been approached by some of them. We have chosen, however, to remain with Ken Davenport for two very important reasons: We have absolute trust in his integrity and we know that he will do everything in his power to make a show successful.” – Richard Hopper
“I have had the great privilege of working with Broadway producer Ken Davenport and his stellar team at Davenport Theatrical Enterprises on many productions including the Deaf West Spring Awakening, It’s Only a Play, Macbeth (Alan Cumming), Godspell, Bridges of Madison County, Blithe Spirit (Angela Lansbury/West End) and the upcoming Somewhere in Time. I have been most impressed with his integrity, both creative and commercial, and his innovative impact on the larger Broadway community and industry. He has earned my trust and I appreciate greatly his vision, commitment and passion for delivering wonderful theater experiences on Broadway, the West End and on Tour.” – Lisa Peterson
