We’ve heard that the best way to make a small fortune on Broadway is to start with a larger one. But how true is that joke? In this Salon, you’ll learn how Broadway shows raise investment capital, generate revenue, and spend the money. You’ll learn lingo like “wrap”, “recoup”, and “points”, and how shows go from an idea and a few songs into a juggernaut (or failure). Bring your questions, and expect interesting answers that will spark engaging discussion.

Salon Dates: 

Saturday, Oct 7 @ 4:30pm
