Holiday Greetings from The Producer’s Perspective

On behalf of myself, as well as my entire staff . . . Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to each and every one of you.

A donation will be made on behalf of the readers of this blog to TDF, who works hard to give the gift of theater to so many who wouldn’t ordinarily have the chance.

So, what did you ask Santa for this year?

Or put it this way . . . if you could ask for one thing . . . theater related . . . what would it be?  Hugh Jackman tickets?  Ben Brantley’s home address?  The new Godspell cast recording?  😉

If I had to pick one theater thing to ask Santa for this year it would be . . .

An increase in domestic tourism in the 2012 year, because when tourism is up in our lovely city, our grosses go up as well, and when grosses go up, our recoupment rate goes up, and when our recoupment rate goes up, then more investor money flows in, and when more investor money goes in, Producers can afford to take more risk, like on new writers and unknown talents, and  . . . well you get the picture.

What would you ask Santa for?
