Podcast Episode #13 – Broadway Producer and The Advocate for Artists, Tom Kirdahy.

What I love about Broadway is that there is no one path to becoming a Producer.  Everyone who gets their name above the title comes at it from their own unique angle.  We’ve got Press Agents that have become Producers, Booking Agents, Actors, and me, I took the General Management route.  And then there are the Marketers from other Industries, the Television Executives, and more.

You know what else is something?  The Visit.  It started previews, and man, you haven’t seen anything like it.  And Chita?  I mean, come on. …

The nuts and bolts (and a few screws too) of a Broadway Budget.

Since I started blogging six years ago, I’ve received countless emails from folks around the world asking for information about Broadway budgets. “Can I see one?” “How much does scenery cost?” “What the eff is a recoupment schedule and how do you calculate it?” It was all these questions and the e-piles more that got me to hold my very first Webinar last October which I aptly named, Breakin’ Down A Broadway Budget.  And it was awesome.  I put together a PowerPoint, went through an actual Broadway budget line by line, and filled in the online and on-the-phone audience with …
