Editorial Reviews

Review

"Stage Money surveys the rough terrain of present financial demands on the theater business to present a timely and valuable approach to the myriad problems of producing theater today. The authors illuminate current business models with breathtaking thoroughness and ground their observations in anecdotal evidence as well as facts and figures of budgeting, tax codes, union contracts, ticket pricing, and marketing and publicity concerns. In setting these calculations in the recognizable context of creative and cultural aspects of American theater, rich snapshots emerge of early-twenty-first-century Broadway and the regional stage. And that the authors are able to offer such an optimistic picture of the present and future of the business speaks volumes about the vitality and viability of their original insights here." --James Fisher, head, Department of Theatre, University of North Carolina at Greensboro

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
It's so refreshing to have a book on producing that is current! Donahue and Patterson have done their research, examining budgets, profits, operating costs and other factors for Broadway and Off-Broadway shows over the past ten years. This is a great reference for those already in the industry, and a must read for new producers entering the scene.

Unlike other books on producing, Stage Money looks at Commercial and Non-Profit theatre models, not Broadway and Non-Profit models. As very few shows actually make it to Broadway, the focus on Commercial (including Broadway, Off-Broadway, Off-Off-Broadway, special events and other commercial models), makes this book a particularly good resource. Our industry is shifting and the lines between commercial and non-profit are blurring. It is nice to see someone actually clarifying these lines for those uninitiated.

Aside from being a quick, consise and informative read, it's entertaining. Lots of examples from recent theatre. From Broadway to regional to outdoor pageants to Las Vegas, this book covers all forms of organized theatre at a level of detail that is just right. Tells you what you want to know without getting into the weeds.
