And the 2014 Broadway Producer of the Year is . . .

We had a record breaking number of votes for this year’s Broadway Producer of the Year, and with this year’s crop of nominees, I’m not surprised.  We had big corporations and single dudes and even a two time nominee.

But the winner, by a decent margin, mind you, is the good ol’ Mom and Pop producing team of Howard and Janet Kagan!

Congrats to the Kagans on a producing job well done.

What’s most exciting about the Kagans so far is that a quick check of the PlaybillVault will show you that they’ve only been producing shows for about 3 years.  And they’ve only just started lead producing shows in the last 1-2.

And that means there is lots more good stuff to come.

Thanks for the inspiration, Mr. and Mrs. Kagan.  My readers and I salute you.  I only wish the prize for winning this honor was automatic recoupment of your next show.

But a nice certificate messengered to your office in the next couple of days will have to do.  🙂

Thanks to everyone who voted, and here’s hoping you’re one of next year’s nominees.

    I am one of the fortunate people to be associated with Howard and Janet Kagan and the production of this wonderful show. I simply wish to add that not only are the Kagans incredibly smart, gifted and creative, but they are two of the nicest and classiest people you would ever want to meet. Congratulations Howar and Janet on a well deserved honor!!!

  • Congratulations to the Kagan’s!!! And a special thanks to you for all of the wonderful, entertaining, and enlightening blogs. Happy, healthy new year to you and yours! All my best,

    Congrats to my producers! They had the courage and the class to take On The Town from its boutique production at Barrington Stage Company in Western Mass. and bring it to 42nd street in a glorious version (sans movie stars) at the splendidly restored Lyric Theater. Howard and Janet are outstanding professionals and very deserving of such accolades. Here’s to a great 2015 for them.
