We wrote the book on Broadway Investing. Literally.
Let me take you back in time . . . to when I was a young pup, looking to get into the game of producing and investing in Broadway shows.
I looked everywhere for a guide on how to get involved only to find . . . there was jack @#$% available anywhere on how to do it.
I eventually figured stuff out on my own, through trial (and quite a few) errors, and I vowed that one day when I knew more, I’d go public with the info in the hopes to help of helping folks avoid the mistakes that I made.
In the midst of all this, I crowdfunded my Broadway revival of Godspell in 2011. Thousands of people expressed interested in investing, which made me realize just how many people out there were interested but had previously been hesitant to start investing. Not only did they not know the ins-and-outs, but they didn’t know how to get started investing in an industry that has such a high-risk reputation.
Flash forward to today, when Broadway investing has become more popular than ever, thanks to the booming Broadway box office and the lightning rod of press we’ve received from hits like Hamilton, telecasts like Jesus Christ Superstar, and more.
More people are interested . . . but based on the questions people ask me, there still wasn’t much information to be found.
That made me nervous.
See, while I love that people are interested in investing in Broadway, I want to make sure that when they do invest, they do so with the information they need to invest (combined) with the right expectations and the right strategies to maximize their chance of a positive experience, financially, artistically and emotionally. (I often say that investing in Broadway is the riskiest investment you’ll ever love to make.)
So I thought . . . there should be a book about Broadway Investing. I know when I get involved in a new area in my life, be it golfing or parenthood, I read a book about it.
But there wasn’t one on Broadway Investing.
So I wrote one.
And I’m thrilled to say you can pre-order it right now on Amazon.com . . . for only $2.99.
The price will jump up to $19.99 when we’re officially on the “shelf,” on March 15th, but since I think the information in the book is important for anyone even remotely interested in investing in Broadway (and for those of you looking to raise money from investors as well), I wanted to offer a super low opportunity for you to get it now. In fact, this is as low as Amazon will allow, actually.
So if you want to know . . .
- What happens to your money after you invest.
- How does money get returned to you?
- What are the perks and benefits you MUST ask for when investing in order to maximize your returns?
- The biggest mistakes first time Broadway Investors make
- My strategies for picking shows that decrease your risk and increases your chance of finding a big hit.
Oh, and as a bonus, each purchase includes a link to an online appendix that includes tons of free materials including sample documents, budgets, exclusive research from actual investors, and more. It’s the only treasure chest of information available that is especially for the current or future Broadway Investor.
So grab the only book available all about Broadway Investing . . . and let me know what you think.
I hope it helps you find the next Hamilton. 🙂Get it for only $2.99 until March 15th here.
