Contest: Win Tickets To How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying

Update: The contest is now closed. Thank you so much to everyone who entered. I wish I could give you all the tickets. The winner was selected randomly. Congratulations Sara! I will be e-mailing you shortly with details on how to claim your tickets.

Daniel Radcliffe stars as J. Pierrepont Finch in the 50th anniversary revival of How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. The musical, with a score by Frank Loesser, follows window washer Finch as he tries to move up the corporate ladder. I'm very excited to offer one lucky Pataphysical Science reader the chance to win a pair of tickets to see the show between March 29 and April 28 (certain performances excluded). All you have to do is answer three trivia questions (don't worry--they're not difficult).

Daniel Radcliffe made his Broadway debut in 2008. What was the name of the show? Who was the author? What was Daniel Radcliffe's character's name? Answer all three in the comments section for a chance to win tickets to the show. I have temporarily turned on comment moderation and will wait until the contest ends to post the comments. Please include your e-mail address or Twitter handle so you can be contacted if you win. A winner will be selected randomly from the correct entries on Monday, March 28 at 10 a.m.
