How to Invest in a Broadway Show: Broadway Investing 101

Ever since I started the blog, I’ve gotten questions about all sorts of stuff relating to Broadway shows from how to create a budget (start by mastering Excel), to how much an ad in the New York Times costs (too much), and so on.

When I get similar questions from multiple readers, I take that as a sign that a whole bunch of you are facing the same issue, so I answer the question in a post (see the “Questions From Readers” category).

About a year ago, I posted a two-part response to several reader’s inquiries about how to invest in a Broadway show. It was my attempt to demystify the investment process and also give potential investors the information they need to make a more informed decision before they put money in a show.

Well, as you can probably imagine, ever since I announced what I am doing with Godspell, the number of questions I’ve received regarding investing in Broadway shows has increased . . . oh . . . at least 10 fold.

So I recently sat down to write a blog addressing some of the questions about Broadway investing that I have received over the past few months.

An hour in, I was still staring at a blank screen.

Since the questions were on such a variety of issues and required follow up questions, there just wasn’t a way to concisely address them all.

So I decided to create a seminar focusing on the ins and outs of Broadway Investing.

During the seminar, I’ll discuss general Broadway investment structures, agreements, some of the risks of investing in Broadway shows, how to mitigate those risks, what I look for when I make a Broadway investment, perks to ask for when you invest, and more.

The seminar is great for Producers, people thinking about producing, as well as anyone who has ever thought about investing in a Broadway show.

I look forward to seeing you there!
