Caption Contest: Swan Song Edition

Play this month’s Caption Contest and you might win a copy of the libretto for ‘Dear Evan Hansen.’

Every month, American Theatre wants your input. We post a new cartoon and you, readers, are invited to write a caption to it. This month’s cartoon is above.

The winner of the contest will receive a copy of the libretto for Dear Evan Hansen, with book by Steven Levenson, published by TCG Books. Submit your entry below.

This contest has closed. Check back soon for the winners.

*Participants cannot win two consecutive contests.

**After a good run for the last three years, we are sad to announce that this will be our last Caption Contest. Many thanks for artist Mark Krause for his thought-provoking (and pun inducing) illustrations over the years. You can find more of his work here. And a very big thanks to all of our readers who played the contest, you have brought the staff of American Theatre so many laugh-out-loud moments.

Last month’s winner and finalists:

“The lead for Waiting for Godot is taking the role a bit too seriously.” —Partho Roy


“Be advised that our actor’s mood has elevated from ‘I can’t go on.'” —Scott Tredwell

“She says the show cannot go on with Trump in the house. And I have to say sir, I agree with Ms. Lupone on this one. ” —Mary Bleier
