Happy T-Day: 10 things I am thankful for this year.

1.  All of a sudden, investing in the theater doesn’t seem as risky as it did before the stock market collapse.

2.  Telecharge is rebuilding their website.

3.  We hit our goal of 10,000 members on BroadwaySpace.com three months early.

4.  A NY Times staffer, who refused to be named, told me that his department loved DidHeLikeIt.com.

5.  Broadway is going green.

6.  I have a fantastic staff that comes in early and stays late:  Matt, Jamie Lynn, Ryan, and all my interns and admin assistants (including Michael Roderick, who proofs these blogs every morning).

7.  Altar Boyz, My First Time, and The Awesome 80s Prom all recouped. And Speed The Plow is speeding along on its way.

8.  Seth Godin has a new book (I have an extra copy – first person to comment that they want it, gets it).

9.  The new TKTS booth actually opened.

10.  I get to wake up every morning and work in an industry that I love.  I know, I know, that sentence is pure this, but it doesn’t make it any less true.

Happy Thanksgiving.  Just remember:  Eat a turkey. Don’t produce one.

    Loved “Purple Cow” and “Permission Marketing” – both small enough to keep in my car and give me a quick boost before meetings and such. Perhaps I’ll be able to add a third for free!!
    I’m thankful that in such a competitive business, as actor and budding producer, most of us are sharing and genuinely happy when another of us succeeds. Probably a character trait that got us into this business in the first place.
    Happy Thanksgiving, All!

  • New Seth Godin book? I definitely want that!!
    I did not see the news about Telecharge but boy oh boy that is good news. That website needs so much work it’s scary. It shouldn’t take until late 09, but I guess progress is progress.
    Congrats on a successful year, and good luck as we progress into the holidays and 2009!

    I love SETH GODIN! Would love the copy of his new book as I go on my cruise!

  • I’ll take the extra book.

  • Aaron says:

    I’m thankful for a blog that is honest and not afraid to question the industry.

  • Thanks for that, Aaron!
