Podcast Episode 8 – Hal Luftig

 

Yes, my blog and subsequent podcast is called The Producer’s Perspective.

And yes, as crazy as it sounds, I haven’t had a Broadway Producer on the podcast!

Until now!

And how fitting that our first Producer on the podcast is the first Producer I worked for as a Broadway Company Manager . . . none other than Hal Luftig, who has already been to the podium twice to collect Best Musical Tony Awards for Thoroughly Modern Millie (the one I worked on) and Kinky Boots (which I’m a Producer on).

But Hal has seen all sides of the business, having worked his way up from working in an Off Broadway Theater, and subsequently producing Off Broadway shows, until he started producing big Broadway ones.

And now he’s going to tell you all his secrets, including . . .

  • What he believes modern Producers need to know to succeed.
  • How Audra McDonald is helping him cross something off his bucket list.
  • The wise words his therapist of a husband has told him that keeps him going through the tough times.
  • The secret to campaigning for a Best Musical Tony Award.

You’re gonna learn a lot from this podcast . . . and if you’re like me, you’re also gonna be super inspired.

Enjoy Hal!  (And don’t forget to subscribe, because next week I speak to one of the most powerful people in the biz . . . a theater owner.  Which one?  Tune in to find out!)
