OUR COMPANY

Investing in Entertainment without Boundaries

Center Stage Capital, Inc. is a newly formed company with a new differentiating business model that has acquired the assets that include four initial productions that have been developed by its principals over the last 6 years. This model enables the investor (shareholder) to invest directly in a portfolio of four original theatrical productions through our private placement offering. With a portfolio of diverse productions, a seasoned management team and a solid business plan, we believe that our strategy could provide a sustainable and positive return to investors. We accomplish this in part by eliminating the middle man (co-producers) and the profits that would go to the co-producers. This structure could allow a greater profit/cashflow to the bottom line.

The initial offering will be used to produce four new theatrical works. Center Stage Capital currently has options on all the intellectual property rights necessary to realize the live works. The works are slated to be launched on Broadway, Off-Broadway, Las Vegas, Regional Theater, and/or International stages.

We believe this model enables us to:

  • Mitigate risk through diversification by having multiple productions.
  • By eliminating the middleman (co-producers) our model could potentially generate greater returns from available cash flows.

"Mr. Zdenek (EVP Mercer Advisors) said; Center Stages approach speaks to the same idea that financial advisers emphasize to their clients about the stock market…have your money spread among several investments in an effort to mitigate losses. “It all comes down to having a diverse portfolio."

— Wall Street Journal – July 19, 2018 – Mr. Zdenek is an unpaid member of the Board of Directors for Center Stage Capital.

We believe that our strategy could provide a sustainable, stable, and positive return to investors over time. We have acquired the works that our principals have been developing for more than 6 years and are ready to quickly begin shows that enable us to generate ticket revenues. This allows the investor to participate in the later phase of the production process.

We believe our model is better because:

  • In addition to the option rights for live theatre, Center Stage Capital has certain ancillary rights for film, television, merchandising, licensing and video gaming (with potential e-sports revenue.
  • We aim to use any potential cash flow to invest in new productions to provide our shareholders with a stable continuous source of income and enhance long-term value.
  • Investor return is not reduced, as in the traditional Broadway financing model, with above the line percentage distributions to co-producers.
  • We will build a shareholder community. Shareholders will participate in multiple events such as opening nights, workshop presentations, talk backs, backstage tours, readings, as well as shareholder surveys after readings for direct feedback into our productions.
  • We anticipate having economies of scale by having a consistent and professional operations team working on all the shows rather than production by production.
  • Our senior executives have worked with international markets such as London’s West End, Europe, Australia, Canada and Asia and will be supported by a team of investment and operational professionals, including accountants, attorneys and auditors.

"Disrupting Broadway- Mamma Mia! Center Stage Capital Tries to Pull an Uber”"

— Forbes – July 13, 2018

Center Stage Capital is very different from the traditional theatrical investment model and Broadway or Off-Broadway Funds.

Unlike funds and funding created by a collection of co-producers, we will add product to continue to grow our business. Your investment performance will be proportional with the success we generate from our exclusive creative and management control of our theatrical productions and ancillary products. And unlike the traditional theatrical investment model, shareholders are not expected to reinvest in tours, transfer or any additional uses derived from the productions. Cash flow is expected to capitalize all additional productions.

We are managed by veteran Broadway producers/managers who have a proven experience in identifying past works that have been successful in the theater industry. Pam Laudenslager, our Chair and CEO, is a two-time Tony winning producer and Drama Desk Winner; Colleen Lober, our President and Chief Operating Officer has worked for Disney Theatrical Productions and other producers/productions for over 30 years. Guy Lawrence our CFO served as CFO of Morgan Stanley’s real estate subsidiaries. He has been an active theatrical investor and Bill Hussey, our Vice President & Corporate Secretary is a seasoned finance professional with twenty years’ experience in the entertainment field including 12 years with Disney Theatrical Productions.

Our goal is to provide our investor the opportunity to participate in theatrical related experiences and features while reducing the risk inherent in investing in entertainment.

This is a unique opportunity for investors to become industry insiders.

Green Acres The Musical

Book, music and lyrics by Tor Hyams and Lisa Rothauser

Directed by Tom Caruso

GREEN ACRES THE MUSICAL is the spirited musical comedy love story of Oliver and Lisa Douglas. He is a high-powered, Manhattan attorney and she is an aspiring fashion designer and, together, they are living “the good life” in New York city. Faced with the overwhelming pressure to run his family’s law firm and live up to his father’s reputation, Oliver longs for the simple life, but New York and all that it has to offer is Lisa’s perfect world. What happens when two people in love find themselves wanting opposite lives sends us on a journey that is both hilarious and filled with heart. Join us in this fast-paced, contemporary story that features the best in comedy, music and dance, including the well-loved Green Acres Theme song. This uproarious new take on the iconic television show is Broadway bound.

The plan for this show is to do one or more out of town tryouts in a regional theatre, proceed with a short tour in the U.S. and then on to Broadway. The budget for this show is approximately 14 million dollars.
