Each week we gather up a few stories worth a read (or second read). And now, in case you missed them …

  • TV and Broadway producers Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino sat down with Vulture‘s Denise Martin to give insight into their play Violet and the demise of Bunheads.
  • Even if you’re extremely careful with your ticket pricing you may be setting yourself up for failure just by doing the wrong math. Goldstar CEO Jim McCarthy shares why thinking in terms of “break-even” pricing may be costing you big bucks.
  • In what is sure to be good news for some and terribly bad news for others, a new Australian website called Who Pays Artists? has launched as a platform for performers to dish about the pay (or lack of) from their employers. Clive Paget at Limelight has the full story. Do you think an American version will pop up next?
  • Selling Out launched a new feature this week, where we break down the top 10 Broadway shows by Revenue Per Seat. Want to know who’s selling most effectively? Check out our chart.
  • Technically it’s TV and not live entertainment, but we were blown away by Mad Men‘s clever campaign for an Emmy. Just what you’d expect from a show about advertising. Maybe a few theater shows can glean some inspiration?
