Progressive Business Publications, Proud Corporate Sponsor for Les Miserables at The Walnut Street Theatre, Announces That This Production is a Record Breaking Presentation!

Progressive Business Publications (PBP) (www.pbp.com) is thrilled to sponsor the musical that broke all ticket sales in the history of the nation's largest and most successful subscription theater. Les Miserables was an unqualified success for The Walnut Street Theatre (www.walnutstreettheatre.org). Progressive Business Publications, long-time supporter of the Spring musical series, is delighted with this accomplishment!

Ed Satell, Founder and CEO of PBP said: "We've always recognized that the Walnut is one of Philadelphia's true treasures--an artistic gem as a producing theater, and one of the best run, most effective nonprofits in the Philadelphia region. The Walnut Street Theatre is an extraordinary venue which produces entertainment that appeals to old and young alike. We're very proud of our support for and involvement with this remarkable cultural resource. And this year a terrific cast and a visionary director made Les Mis the not-to-be-missed show!"

Bernard Havard, Walnut President and Producing Artistic Director, stated: "Our association with PBP has been a winning association. We've benefited from the guidance and expertise of our Trustee, Ed Satell, as well as from the sponsorships of his company. In addition, over the years we've enjoyed getting to know PBP's management, PBP's people, and we're always pleased that they anticipate and appreciate the Walnut's presentations."
