"The authors of Stage Money 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."—James Fisher, professor, Department of Theatre, University of North Carolina at Greensboro
"Stage Money offers a concise yet deftly drawn introduction to producing professional theater in America. The authors skillfully portray the critical relationship between the commercial and not-for-profit sectors and offer accessible explanations of the often-convoluted financial and artistic machinations that result in a theatrical production. They wisely situate the world of producing in the larger landscape of doing business in America, and the result is an eminently readable and intelligently written addition to the literature"—Steven Adler, author of On Broadway: Art and Commerce on the Great White Way
