WIN $100,000.00

Who wouldn't like a cool $100,000.00? I sure could use it. So I'm getting my butt down to the Amalgamated Bank at 426 86th Street, between Fourth and Fifth Avenues on Saturday for the "Break the Bank" contest.

And if $100,000.00 isn't enough to get you down there, John Starks will be there. He won't be signing autographs. He just has nothing to do. (okay, maybe he'll sign some autographs)

Here's the skinny:
Saturday, October 24 from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Amalgamated Bank, Bay Ridge, 426 86th Street, between 4th & 5th Avenues
Other prizes include:
Four basketballs autographed by John Starks.
Ipod Touch
Two tickets to the New York Knicks versus Boston Celtics game
Two tickets to Broadway’s Bye Bye Birdie
A case of popchips offered by the event’s sponsor, all-natural popchips
Special gifts to anyone who opens a CD account at Amalgamated’s Bay Ridge branch.

Time for me to dust off the old horn and do a little tooting. One of my plays made the Top Ten most produced plays this year.

Most-Produced Plays

American Theatre magazine published Theatre Communications Group’s annual Top Ten list of the most-produced titles of the current fall-to-spring regional theatre season.

The most-produced plays in TCG member theatres nationwide follow. Because of several ties, there are actually 14 plays in the Top Ten List of 2009-10, which does not include Shakespearean works or holiday-themed shows.
