Champion Season Becomes a Champ
The Broadway revival of Jason Miller's That Championship Season, starring Mr. Miller's son, Jason Patrick, 24's Kiefer Sutherland, Chris Noth, Brian Cox, and Jim Gaffifan, has become a champion to the production's producers. Even though the show received relatively poor reviews overall and considering the current economy's tough implications on Broadway's profitability, the production did manage to recoup the show's $2.75 million initial investment. The show's producers credit this speedy recovery to the high-profile cast's willingness to promote the heck out of it in a number of publicity stunts.
