Look at how much ink Broadway Producers and Investors got.

I get my NY Times Sunday Arts and Leisure section delivered to me on Thursday.  Yep, in case you didn’t know, the sections of the Sunday Times that aren’t “headline dependent” are printed well in advance, and as a courtesy provided to those folks out there that fill it with ads, the Times will get it to you earlier. When I got my copy last week and saw the headline, “I Want To Be A Producer (Me, Too!),” and the accompanying story, I was intrigued.

If you’ve ever produced a show, you know that when it’s over, you’re left with a lot of #@$%. I remember heading to the strike of one show I worked on and seeing a moose head, an 8-track player, and a helium tank among the rubble (Can you guess the show?  The Crucible!  Kidding.) So what do you do with all that #@$%? The collaborative folks at the League of Independent Theater have come up with a great answer.
