Special Giveaway: Win Tickets to See the New Alan Rickman Writing Comedy “Seminar” on Broadway

Categories: Chuck Sambuchino's Guide to Literary Agents Blog, What's New.

We have a very special contest going down right now on the GLA Blog. Here’s the deal. There’s a new comedy on Broadway called “Seminar” that stars none other than Alan Rickman (bad guy in Die Hard, cheating husband in Love Actually, and, oh yeah, Snape in Harry Potter) as a writing instructor. Time Out New York gave it 5 stars and said Alan Rickman is hilarious in it and basically the man, which, naturally, we already knew. We’re giving away tickets on this blog. Keep reading if you want to win a pair!

THE GIVEAWAY: This contest goes through EOD, January 9, 2012. With the help of Serino/Coyne in NYC, we are giving away four (4) free pairs of tickets to random commenters. The show itself is on an open-ended run, so winners are allowed to cash in their tickets for anytime in Jan – March 2012 — so you should be able to find a date that works for you. (Update: Winners picked on 1-10: lhinkey, Marta, gigig99 and shannon.kahle.)

HOW TO WIN: 1) Comment on this post. 2) In addition to commenting, you must share news (a link) of this contest at least once through your blog, Facebook or Twitter. If you tweet the news, just include the “Seminar” handle @SeminarOnBway in your tweet, so we can find it later to verify. If you blog or Facebook the news instead, please include your actual link within your comment below. Easy peasy! Questions about the contest? E-mail me at literaryagent@fwmedia.com

THE SHOW: “In SEMINAR, four aspiring young novelists sign up for private writing classes with Leonard (Alan Rickman), an international literary figure. Under his recklessly brilliant and unorthodox instruction, some thrive and others flounder, alliances are made and broken, sex is used as a weapon and hearts are unmoored. The wordplay is not the only thing that turns vicious as innocence collides with experience in this biting new comedy. This is its world premiere.”


Thanks for entering!

    So, I can’t think of a better reward for my writing efforts than to win tickets to this show (which of course, I would share with my favorite KC writer friends). Ok, maybe waking up to see my novel anywhere on the NY Times Best Seller list. But since that ain’t happening anytime soon… Whoops, I forgot–posted the contest link on facebook http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=593147371

    Posted on Facebook: (https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1455081922)
    Writer’s Digest is having a contest to giveaway tickets to “Seminar” on Broadway!

    I love Alan Rickman! Truly, Madly, Deeply is one of my all time favorite movies and I just saw him being deliciously horrible in Nobel Son over the weekend. Combine that with a lifelong desire to see a real Broadway show and this would make me the happiest ‘Grammy’ in town! Len would love this one too!

  19. CMH says:

    The thought of Alan Rickman as an instructor – I’d be terrified every time I spoke in class! This would be fabulous to see on Broadway. I’m posting it to my facebook.

  22. jcastello says:

    twitter is ladycastello. Rickman is a fantastic human being and the only actor I know of that really cares about not only his role, but the story of the film/play he’s working with. I really hope for this opportunity to see Rickman in person and give myself a reason to see NYC for the first time …

  23. giroflee28 says:

    Hello everybody!
    First, i’m sorry for my poor english, but i’m french…. I know it’s a good pretext. But the only one:)
    I want to see Alan Rickman, to check if he’s real, and not just a god of theater and cinema. Although i think to see Alan Rickman on Broadway is a miracle!
    To conclude, i’ll go across the ocean by swimming ( or plane… ) to see Seminar.



    PS:You can choose me also, because you have mercy upon my English, and you want to give me a chance to improve it. :) ..

  24. cookvf78 says:

    I never win anything, but this is the most exciting prize I could ever imagine. I am a huge fan of Mr. Rickman and would love nothing more than to see his genius firsthand. I have never been to New York City and can not think of a better reason to go than to see The Seminar. I have been following stories about this play from the day Mr. Rickman was announced to take the lead, hoping to get tickets. However due to the economy, my hours have been cut back so drastically I cannot afford a pair of tickets. To win this prize would be the best thing to happen to me in a long time! Please pick me! I am tweeting this using my twitter account of the same name (@MamaOwl_Kirby).

  79. David Clark says:

    Funny how, just an hour ago, I read a fascinating article about how Alan played Snape because of a secret told to him by J.K. Rowling during the earliest filming of the Harry Potter series. Viewing the movies, I had the feeling there was something going on with Snape, but I couldn’t tell what, until all was revealed in the final movie. What a surprise! One may not fully appreciate fine acting unless one hears the in-depth background like this. I do, now!

    Ive wanted to see this show since I heard about it ages ago when Alan Rickman was announced to be in it! I am a huge! All his roles have been incredible! I love Jerry as well! Hilarious guy! I love NYC and thos show sounds incredible and if money wasnt a issue I would of seen it already, so this would be perfect! I could take my best friend whos birthday is soon! Ive also been a huge fan of writers digest from my grandma. Please pick me! Tweeted it and fb!

  96. jessaguilera says:

    Alan Rickman is an amazing actor. His acting skills are just phenomenal. He can portray the bad guy AND the nice guy perfectly. And don’t get me started on his voice…..
    Alan is my favorite actor and he is my inspiration. He’s the reason I want to become a successful performer and an entertainer.

    I would ​love to see him perform live in “Seminar”. And for me, there’s nothing greater than Alan starring in a comedy performance! But Unfortunately, I’m in Indonesia, and it’s very hard for me to deal with this, because I can’t easily just go to the US whenever there is a show like this and buying the tickets from here will be really difficult and complicated — and not to mention the price that I have to discuss with my parents, nor it is easy for me to just fly over to UK to meet him.

    So, it will be really great if I could win this and get the tickets to go watch “Seminar”. I would willing to fly over there if I have the tickets….(Or does the contest includes flying me over to US too? :p)

    Winning this contest means so much to me! I could finally meet THE Alan Rickman; the man whom I wanted to meet the most because he’s inspired my life a lot,
    and seeing the commercial, trailer, behind the scenes, snippets, people’s comments, and a lot more sources, “Seminar” seems like the show that must be watched!

    I believe, that someday, I will have the chance to meet Alan and see him perform live. Even if I didn’t win the contest, I am still positive that God will someday give me the chance to see Alan in another show. And I also believe I could be an actress/performer just like him.

    And if the contest isn’t eligible for people in Indonesia and outside the US/UK like me, just consider this as my honest and true opinion about Alan Rickman and “Seminar”.

    So thank you so much for giving this opportunity for fans like us, to participate in this wonderful contest, and giving a chance for us to win a ticket to see our favorite actor perform.
    I’ve tweeted this and shared it with my friends at @jessaguilera

    Thx so much!
    Hope you’ll consider on picking me :)

    Would be a very nice birthday gift to me!

  117. maf779 says:

    I have been following Seminar since it was just a one page web link saying Theresa Rebeck wrote a play, Alan Rickman would be starring in it, it would be staged somewhere on Broadway and some other actors would be along eventually. So, yeah, would love to see it!! I don’t really know how to link though. I made my share of this post public on my FB, hope that is sufficient!

  118. BWhoyouare says:

    Tweeted! Really want to see this show!!

  119. Elegavie says:

    I would love to see this show, although if I won I would probably give at least one ticket to a great friend. I am going to repost on my facebook page.

  120. jennifersmu says:

    You had me at Alan Rickman. Hello–ALAN RICKMAN??? *Swoon.* Talking about writing? *Double swoon.* What a great idea for a Broadway show! A little humor about an industry that can really take it out of you sometimes would be just so… I don’t know. Probably even better than the feeling you get when your new issue of Writer’s Digest arrives in the mail. (As if that were possible.)

    Okay, pardon the shameless sucking up. Pick me! Pick me! Shared on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jennifersmu

  124. kguilfoyle says:

    I saw this show in December as a birthday present and it was fantastic! especially seeing Alan Rickman as he was one of my favorite actors!!! It’s one of his best so far in my opinion.

  126. NarcissaABlack says:

    I would love to see this play not only because Alan Rickman is in it but Jerry O’Connell as well. Besides seeing those two wonderful actors, I would use the second ticket to surprise a wonderful friend who like me is dying to see the play especially Jerry O’Connell.

  134. leahh617 says:

    AHHHHHH!!!! I’d love to see Alan Rickman in person!!!!! That’d be amazing. I’ve heard he’s even more brilliant on stage than he is in movies and he’s done some amazing stuff (Snow Cake was just, I can’t even describe) and then to possibly meet him and hear that voice directed at me after would make my life. Meeting Lily would be awesome too. I’m loving American Horror story. Just posted on twitter (@leahh617)!!

  135. jlw24 says:

    I would do anything to see Alan Rickman “push me, provoke me, and turn my whole world upside down.” I even promoted this contest to my followers on my blog, decreasing my chance of winning!


  136. Chrizzie says:


    I am from Germany, and I would so much love to see this play! When should you live your dreams if not TODAY??? I have watched many of Alan Rickman’s movies, but his stage performance must be an extra-ordinary experience as well as a lesson in acting!!

  140. elishamaldonado says:
