ABOUT THIS EPISODE:
Before I crowdfunded Godspell, I had a thesis.
“There are thousands of people out there who would love to invest in Broadway shows . . . they just don’t know how to do it, or who to talk to.”
Sure enough, when we announced our plans for Godspell, thousands of leads poured in. In between placing all those return calls I remember thinking, “Huh, will you look at that . . . I got this one right.”
Of course, not all those people invested (in the end we had about 750 investors), but thousands expressed interest and proved my thesis correct.
And all those thousands of people had questions.
Five years later, people still have questions about investing in Broadway shows. As I’ve spoken to more and more potential investors, I’ve noticed that many of the questions are the same.
That’s why I’ve created this FAQ for Broadway Investing. So whether you’re a potential Broadway Investor looking to dip your toes into our theatrical waters, or whether you’re a Producer looking to raise money for your show, I think you’ll find these Qs and their appropriate As helpful.

My mission is to get more people talking about the theater. The more people talking about it, the more people who want to make it, perform it, support it, etc. And that’s how theater not only survives, but thrives.
The biggest compliment you can give me is by sharing this podcast.
I thank you and the theater thanks you!
