ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Broadway producer Eric Falkenstein. Falkenstein had a meeting with the business lawyers who have been helping him try to structure a Broadway production investment fund. The idea of a production fund is not new to Broadway, but previous attempts to raise them haven't been successful. By creating a production fund that would be structured like a traditional private equity fund, Falkenstein believes he will be able to reach a broader group of investors, and ultimately help the industry break out of its hidebound money-raising strategies. As the first pure play production company that managed to attract Wall Street's attention and make it public, Livent's 1995 listing on Nasdaq made significant inroads in capturing Wall Street's interest and diminishing its previous image as a vanity industry with convoluted business models, says Philip Ellis, a managing director for private equity shop E&M Capital Partners. Beyond investment returns, Falkenstein and his partners are counting on Broadway's star power as much as anything.
