Defining Originality: The How Rather Than the What

Half of Broadway's content is from other sources, according to this article. And you know what? I don't care! In fact, I think Jordan Roth of Jujamcyn Theaters nailed this topic forevermore in his TEDxBroadway 2012 talk, when he defined "originality" to mean more than just, "is there source material?" But on the invention inherent to the work. The "how" rather than just the "what," as he put it. Hey, Shakespeare cribbed Ovid, Plutarch and folk tales from all over Europe,...

No One Knows and No One Cares

Here’s a joke for you: What’s the difference between ignorance and apathy? I don’t know, and I don’t care. No, really, that’s the answer. Seth Godin once said that booksellers shouldn’t be worried about piracy robbing them of riches, but instead wishing people cared enough about their products to try to pirate them. That reminded me of something I say to entrepreneurs and would-be entrepreneurs all the time: If you work from the assumption that no one knows or cares about your product or...

Money Now, But Long-Term Value Destruction

I wrote about this a couple years ago, and it's only gotten worse. Short-term dollars (maybe); long-term value destruction. As soon as there's a mild downturn in interest in college football, these bad bowls are going to be a financial albatross that could bankrupt smaller schools and conferences. By the way, most of these games are practically unsellable as tickets, however much the lesser bowl games' proprietors try to pretend the contrary. It's also a perfectly mockable emblem of...

Consider Pricing Simplicity to Avoid Lost Sales

Live Nation wins a lawsuit that was, frankly, a little nutty to begin with. The plaintiff’s claim is that, as a monopolist, Live Nation charged service fees that caused him damages and, therefore, LN should be forced to have an ‘all-in’ pricing model. The judge said, rightly, that the claim of a monopoly was irrelevant, and that whether the fees are added or part of the ‘all-in’ price, the plaintiff would be paying the same and, therefore, there were...

What Major League Baseball Can Teach Us

Lots of literally "inside baseball" information here, but I'd call your attention to the "Most Disappointing City" items about halfway down. Chicago Cubs sell-outs have been for a long time as reliable as McDonald's restrooms when traveling abroad. But they're down this year, to the point where you can just, gasp, BUY a ticket to a game from the box office, and a downright mortal 9th in terms of sell-through percentage. Is it team performance, which has been poor?...

What Does a Ticket Really Get You?

Most of the people who are reading this post sell tickets, and we even talk about the Ticket Business. But I’ve always believed that the ticket is the last thing we should be talking about, and the last thing buyers actually care about. Nobody, outside the odd collector, places value on the piece of paper you’re (sometimes) given to gain entry to a show. The ticket is not the thing. Surely, you say, the thing is the show you’re buying:...

Why The Death of an Arts Org Is Like a Plane Crash

Howard Sherman compares the death of an arts organization to an airplane crash, and I think it’s a very strong metaphor. Here’s the key tidbit: “…a crash doesn’t occur because of any single event. Typically, they emanate from some failure which then triggers others.” Likewise, he says that, “arts organizations crash because of event cascades as well. It is rarely a single unforeseen occurrence which brings down companies; it is a series of actions, or lack thereof, that result in closure.” Of...
