Hal Luftig - Broadway Producer Finds Value in the Hit Musicals As Well As the Flops

Welcome to a month-long look at previous Broadway seasons...the nominations, the wins, and the losses. 

With four Tony Awards to his name, including two as lead producer, and two Olivier Awards, also as lead producer, Hal Luftig knows and thing or two about theatrical success. But he also knows the pitfalls that come and how not every show finds an audience or makes a lot of money. 

Today, he shares those insights and more from the heights of success with KINKY BOOTS to his disappointment with the early closing of CHILDREN OF A LESSER GOD. He opens up about the lessons he's learned and what keeps him going.
