CONTEST! Win Tickets to HOW TO SUCCEED on Broadway!

In 1961, a big show with an even bigger title opened on Broadway, and took the theatre world by storm!  It was so big, in fact, that it not only won the Tony Award for Best Musical that year, it won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama!  Now, in 2011, that same big show - How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying - returns to Broadway in a brand new production starring some of today's biggest Broadway talents, including a World Wide Film Star and a multi-Emmy winning actor in his Broadway debut!  I'm talking, of course, about Daniel Radcliffe (Equus, the Harry Potter film series) and John Larroquette (Night Court).

And here's the best news of all!  The folks over at How to Succeed have asked me to sponsor a contest!  There will be TWO lucky winners of a pair of tickets each to a performance of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre on Broadway!

(Don't want to play, but still want to see the show?  Scroll to the bottom of this blog for a special link to a discount for How to Succeed..!)

  1. Starting TODAY (and tomorrow, Friday, Monday and Tuesday) there will be a trivia question at the end of my blog for the day.  Each multiple-choice question will be about the 8 musicals (including How to Succeed...) that have won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
  2. Collect each answer, and submit all 5 to me via email at
