I’m taking this social and going on the road.

For the past three years, I’ve had Producer’s Perspective socials here in NYC.  And they’ve been a blast.  They’re a chance for all different kinds of people with one thing in common (a love of theater) to come together, say hello, argue about the actual size of the Spider-Man budget, and, of course, have some bar food and beer. Since I’m going to be in Chicago and LA in January teaching seminars, I thought . . . why not have socials in each city? So we are! On Saturday, January 15th, we’ll be holding the first Producer’s Perspective Social in …

The Reading Series begins.

Back in January, I announced the Davenport Developmental Reading Series, designed to showcase some of the many scripts we receive here at DTE. The first play we’ll be seeing, as chosen by the Artistic Director of the series, Jane Caplow, is Alex Webb’s Amelia.  And as promised, Producer’s Perspective readers are invited first! Here are the details: Monday, March 15th at 8 PM The Producer’s Club Grand Theater (The name is just a wee bit misleading) 358 West 44th St. (between 8th and 9th Aves).

One of the most FAQ I get is “How do I raise money for my show?” While raising money seems like one of the greatest challenges you will face, it’s not.  Creating a great show is a lot harder than raising money for it (and if you do the creation right, the raising part will be easier than passing Obama’s Health Care plan if Scott Brown wasn’t in office). Raising money takes creativity, like our ladies involved in the “Producer Off” (who, by the way, lost a pair of oven mitts last week . . . it’s getting steamy over …

We get a lot of scripts, so we’re gonna do something with them!

Introducing . . . The Davenport Theatrical Developmental Reading Series! It amazes me how many passionate writers are out there in the world. Every day, scripts are submitted to us from people just like you; people that committed their idea to paper, and now want to share it with as many people as possible. I have been brainstorming all year on how to thank all of you for your submissions and give you some sort of props for your passion to the process. I thought about scriptwriting contests with cash prizes, group dramaturgical sessions, and so on.  At the end …
