Yeah. I thought it was an insane amount for a CD. Signed or not.

Didn't that Idina-signed Wicked broom go for $9000?

I get that its for charity, but must be nice to have the expendable income to spend nine grand on a broom.

I think the Barbra Streisand CD went for $600, but it's still crazy pricing. And it wasn't like it was signed in a special way or anything. It was just a regular signed CD.

$9000 for the Elphaba broom must have been the highest price for the silent auction part. A lot of the auction prices were awfully high; I think people were getting caught up in the moment. Someone paid $2020 for a signed Boy from Oz poster. Someone else paid $3000 for a signed Smash pilot script. Jennifer Cody, who is usually a great MC for the silent auction, made it a little too obvious that she thought that a Smash script doesn't deserve that kind of price, which I thought was not a great way to get high bids.

I wish that the younger auctioneer would stop identifying bidders entering the auction as "new money"; it sounds kind of crass to me.

I noticed in general that the musical phrases signed by the composer didn't generally go for nearly as much as in the past. Usually they're at least $700 or so, but a couple went for less than $300.
