FabStuff: Win Some ShowBusiness!

I first came into contact with Dori Berinstein's backstage documentary, ShowBusiness: The Road To Broadway, in 2004...when she was filming it. She and her camera crew were shadowing the major events in Tony Awards race -- the press outings, the private campaigning, the secret dinners -- and many of us who have day jobs in the industry wondered whether her movie would interest anyone beyond show queens. Little did we know at the time that we were about to be in the middle of the hottest Tony contest in decades -- a nail-biting, five-way race between titans Wicked and The Boy From Oz, the downtown upstart Avenue Q, Tony Kushner's acclaimed Caroline or Change, and Boy George's Taboo. Down to the surprise ending (I won't spill it, if you don't know), it was a season unlike any I've experienced before or since.

ShowBusiness captures every thilling moment, taking you inside the battles, showing great footage of the shows, and scoring revealing moments with Alan Cumming, William Goldman, Ben Brantley, Charles Isherwood, Tony Kushner, Tonya Pinkins, George C. Wolfe, Raul Esparza, Boy George, Euan Morton, Rosie O’Donnell, Kristin Chenoweth, Idina Menzel, Stephen Schwartz and more. Anyone who loves the Oscar race or Broadway will be in heaven! (And watching Michael Reidel make a complete fool of himself is better than chocolate, I promise you.)

Thanks to the producers, Modern Fabulousity has FIVE copies of ShowBusiness to give away to lucky winners. Just email us the answer to the (very easy) question below with your name and mailing address for the DVD:
For the Broadway production of Taboo -- which detailed the life story of Boy George -- three Culture Club songs were inserted into the score. Name one of them.
Contest ends Friday...good luck!
