Last Sunday saw the closing of Lend Me A Tenor, our last hold-out of the limited-run plays from this Spring season.
Sadly, my sources tell me that Tenor didn’t manage to turn to profit.
The only good news is now that we know, we can finally crown the winner of this year’s Will It Recoup! (If you’re new to the blog and don’t know what-the-fiduciary-responsibility we’re talking about, click here for the original post.)
Here’s how the final profitability tally looks:
A View from the Bridge: RECOUPED!
The Miracle Worker: Did NOT recoup.
A Behanding in Spokane: Did NOT recoup.
Next Fall: Did NOT recoup.
Looped: Did NOT recoup.
Lend Me A Tenor: Did NOT recoup.
Enron: Did NOT recoup.
THREE winners in the bunch out of nine entries! A 33% success rate this Spring!
Who says Broadway is a risky place? You just gotta know how to pick ’em right?
And you certainly do.
A total of NINE of you scored a 100% in this year’s contest (boy, would you made some bank if this wasn’t a virtual-investment game).
The winner of the Kindle can down to the tiebreaker question: Which of these shows would win the most Tony Awards? (Answer: Red) After adding that criteria, the nine were cut down to a field of TWO.
So, we’re going to pull a Solomon and cut the Kindle in half to see who really wants it.
Naaaaah. We’re going to give away TWO!
Congrats to Howard and Zach on their play.jpgckin’ prowess! You’ve both won a Kindle!
Look for an email from me with details.
And for the rest of you . . . well, there’s always next year. Picking winners isn’t a one season game. There’s always another year . . . whether you’re playing a game, or producing for reals, yo.
