This final note on the way out which comes with the observation that there's a member of the Marketplace bureau here in New York who's going to see "Hamilton" tonight for the second time, even though some of us haven't even seen it once.
Anyway, I mention that so I could pass this along.
There's a story coming in the New York Times magazine this weekend about the lead producer of the blockbuster show about this country's first Treasury Secretary and the challenges of managing a runaway hit like Hamilton.
Here's just one line item:
The show is averaging a profit of more than $500,000 dollars a week.
"Not throwing away my shot," indeed.
“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VABEFORE YOU GO
