It’s time to play . . . Will . . . It . . . Recoup??? Win $500 in Broadway Tickets!

Hey there, ho there, Fantasy Broadway Players!

It’s time for another season of the only game on the web that lets you play Producer . . . Will . . . It . . . Recoup?  (Said to the rhythm of Wheel . . . of . . . Fortune!!!)

Come again?  You don’t know about Will It Recoup?

We’ve been playing WIR for years now . . . so you must be new.  But don’t worry, I’ll explain.  Every spring we look at all the limited run commercial Broadway plays opening . . . and I say, “Imagine you had the option to produce them all . . . which one(s) do you think would recoup?”

You pick your “winners” and later this summer, when all the grosses are calculated and we find out who has recouped and who hasn’t, we pick a winner.

And that winner goes home with $500 in a Ticketmaster Gift Card!  (Yep, so you can use it for 25% of a Hamilton ticket.)

Make sense?

Here are the plays.  Drumroll please . . .

Fully Committed
The Crucible

Only 5 this year.  And if you’ve been reading this blog, then you know what the average success rate on Broadway is.  Will we beat it this season?  Or will we miss it?

The tension!  The tension!  I just can’t take it!
