Play “Will It Recoup” and win a Kindle!
Spring is in the air (sorta), which means it’s time to play . . . (say it with me like you’re the audience of a game show) . . . WILL . . . IT . . . RECOUP!
Last year was the first time we played this fantasy Broadway investment game, and I got a bunch of great feedback about it (especially from last year’s winner, Tom L., who walked away with an iPhone), so I thought we’d play with our imagined fortunes again!
This year, I’m not giving away an iPhone (and I won’t ever again, until they release us from the horror that is AT&T). The grand prize for this season of Will It Recoup is my new favorite toy in my Producer’s Toolkit, a Kindle!
Here’s how the game works:
There are currently nine commercial plays set to open from Jan. 1st to this year’s Tony deadline. Your job? Pick the ones that will recoup. That simple . . .or is it?
I’m not including any musicals, because it would just take too dang long to find out who won the Kindle (I can barely stand how long it takes to get through one American Idol season). Most of the plays are limited runs, or what I call, the ol’ Broadway “Smash and Grab,” so we should know the results sometime this summer.
The plays are:
A View From The Bridge
The Miracle Worker
A Behanding in Spokane
Lend Me A Tenor
And yep, one of the plays above has already opened, so you’ve got a gimme.
To play, just click on the link below. It’ll take you to a survey. Pick the recoupers and you’re in!
A few important rules:
– All entrants must be email subscribers to the blog so I can validate your entry. If you are not an email subscriber, please subscribe by putting your email in the box to the left of this entry. The email you subscribe with must match the email you enter in the survey. (People have lost prizes because of failing to make sure their emails match, so please take care with this one).
– Only one entry per reader
– Recoupment must occur during the Broadway run to count as a recouped show (in other words, subsidiary income doesn’t count).
Entries will only be accepted until 2/15 at 12:01 AM so enter today!

Now let’s play . . . (one more time) . . . WILL . . . IT . . . RECOUP!
