The Sunday Giveaway: Two Tickets to Grace on Broadway

Grace,  the new play by Craig (“Six Feet Under”) Wright, has been in the news a lot lately.  It’s been on Letterman, Scott and Todd in the Morning, and just about every publication in print and on the web.

I’m sure you’ve heard the story.

What you may not have heard, is that this play was also just chosen as one of the top 10 plays of the year by Time Magazine.

That didn’t get them on Letterman, though. The unfortunate water cooler event did.

The winner of this week’s giveaway is going to get a chance to see what got that Time reviewer (and what that ill viewer) so . . . ahem . . . excited.

Yesiree, we’ve got two tickets to Grace on Broadway starring Knocked Up’s Paul Rudd, Boardwalk Empire’s Michael Shannon and seven time (!) Emmy Award winner Ed Asner.

So here’s my question for you . . . if you had a choice between the two events that happened to Grace . . . one that resulted in major national press, and one that put the play in a “must see” category by a major publication . . . which would you choose?

Tough, right?

Well, we ask the tough ones here at The Producer’s Perspective, so let’s put this to a vote!

Let’s set the stage. Imagine you are producing a brand new play on Broadway.  Business is ok, but you could use a boost.  The ghost of David Merrick appears before you and says, “I will grant you one of the following events to get you publicity.  But you only get one so chooooose wisely or your show may flop worse than my production of Mata Hari.”

Your choices are:

A)  The President of the United States sees your show

B)  Your star appears in a sex tape with Tom Cruise

C)  Oprah Winfrey signs on as a Producer

D)  You get a rave from the New York Times

Pick one of the above and put your answer in the comments below and David Merrick will give one of you two tickets to see Grace on Broadway!
