The Sunday Giveaway: A ticket to TEDxBroadway!

TEDxBroadway has been one of the most rewarding things I’ve helped get off the ground.  Every year, hundreds of people converge in a theater to hear how Broadway can be its best from some of the coolest speakers around.

At the end of each of the last two TEDxBroadways, I’ve left the conference not only filled with inspiration, but my pockets were filled with business cards.  Because like all great conferences, TEDxBroadway is a great networking event.  And who will you find in the audience of TEDxBroadway?  People like you . . . who understand that Broadway has its unique challenges, but who are excited to rise up and meet those challenges.  In other words, you know how this movie said “There’s no crying in Baseball?”  Well, there’s no griping at TEDxBroadway.

And the third annual TEDxBroadway, featuring speakers like Bobby Lopez, Diane Paulus, Lea DeLaria, and more is just 8 days away!

And one of you is going for freezies.

Here’s how.

At TEDx, we charge our speakers with this dilemma.  In your “talk,” answer this question . . . “What’s the best Broadway can be?”

So tell me, oh readers, in one sentence . . . what is the biggest obstacle you see preventing Broadway from being even better than it already is.  For example, “Lack of musical theater writing under graduate degrees.”  Oh, and before you say it . . . no one is allowed to say, “High ticket prices.”   That’s just too easy.

Got it?  Comment your one sentence below and one of you will come to TEDxBroadway on February 24th, on me!

Oh, and if you’re nervous you won’t win, make sure you buy your tickets to TEDx today.  I know it sounds like a marketing ploy, but we will sell out.  We’ve sold out every year, and there are only 50 tickets left.  Click here to get yours:  TEDxBroadway tickets.
