William Pe is the winner, by drawing from Random.org. But I’ve put all your answers in a poll: Cher or Mother Teresa: Whose life story should be on Broadway?
Ticket Giveaway: Win two tickets to see “Soul Doctor,” a musical that tells the story of Shlomo Carlebach, the “Rock Star Rabbi” of the 1960’s. After his escape from Nazi Germany, the young Rabbi befriended the jazz singer Nina Simone who introduced him to soul and gospel music. Shlomo created a new sound with melodies that fused his roots with American popular music. “Soul Doctor” will star Eric Anderson (Kinky Boots), who received a 2013 Drama Desk Award nomination for his performance as Shlomo Off-Broadway.
“Soul Doctor” begins performances at Broadway’s Circle in the Square Theater on Wednesday, July 17, 2013 and opens August 15.

Whose life story would you like to see turned into a Broadway show?
1. Please put your answer in the comments at the bottom of this blog post, because the winner will be chosen through Random.org based on the order of your reply, not its content.
But you must answer the question, complete with an explanation of your choice, or your entry will not be approved for submission.
2. Please include in your answer your Twitter name and follow my Twitter feed at @NewYorkTheater so that I can send you a direct message. (If you don’t have a Twitter name, create one. It’s free.)
3. This contest ends Tuesday, July 9, 2013 at midnight Eastern Time, and I will make the drawing no later than noon the next day. You must respond to my direct message on Twitter within 24 hours or I will choose another winner.
You must also be able to attend one of the eligible performances. The voucher is good for two tickets for performances between July 17th and August 14th, 2013.
Only one comment per contestant please. (You will be disqualified if you submit more than once, so please make sure you have all the requirements — such as your Twitter name — before submitting. All submissions have to be approved, so you won’t necessarily see your entry right away. Please be patient.)
