Manhattan Rep’s 42nd St Spring Play Spectacular
100% of the tickets sales go to the Playwright/Producer
April 18 - May 1 at Manhattan Repertory Theatre, 303 West 42nd St. NYC

So we are listening! Many playwrights and producers over the years have been asking for a way to get a percentage of the ticket sales for their productions in Midtown Manhattan. So we are trying something really fun that has NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE in Midtown Manhattan - 100% of the ticket sales goes back to the Playwright/Producer of each participating show. 100% of the gross ticket sales! Manhattan Rep gets no percentage of the ticket sales! And you can choose what you want the ticket price to be! If you sell 100 tickets at $20, you make an even $2000.00! If you sell 150 tickets at $15, you make $2,250.00. If you sell $150 tickets at $20, you take home $3000.00!
