I found this interesting article from Canada's Globe and Mail.

Adam is a smart and ambitious guy, exactly what you want in a young Broadway producer.

He may very well turn out to be our next David Merrick.

can't open the link (already used my 10 free visits to G & M)
but isn't that kinda a backhanded compliment?

It's a compliment. David Merrick, warts and all, is and was probably the greatest Broadway producer.

The article lost me at the first sentence, but hopefully Adam can steer clear of Canadian role models and accomplish some good things.

Blanchay sounds like a decent guy, JFL Theatricals is involved with many new shows like Made in Dagenham and I Can't Sing! plus plays like Ghosts and Mojo so he's working with experienced producers like Sonia Friedman, Stage Entertainment etc before he can branch out as a lead producer.
