A funny thing happened . . . We started a FORUM!
When I was a pre-law guy at Johns Hopkins University back in 19-mumble-mumble, I spent more time in the computer lab than I did in class.
I wasn’t working on inventing Google or Facebook (damnit) . . . I was talking on an electronic theater bulletin board on the brand new Internet. Yep, I’m talking a pre-AOL chat room known as rec.arts.theatre.musicals.
And I loved it. I remember getting flamed for being a fan of Aspects of Love, and also chiming in on the controversy of Jonathan Pryce debuting in Miss Saigon. And more importantly, I met people with similar interests. I ended up getting together with several of them offline, and one even helped me decide which school to transfer to when I decided to drop the law and pursue theater full time.
Chat rooms and message boards have exploded since, and I’m still known to cruise Broadway World and All That Chat every once in a while (and I’ve even been known to post under my real name).
But recently I realized that there isn’t a forum dedicated to people specifically looking to get into the producing game, or looking to get their show produced . . . so we created one!
Introducing The Producer’s Perspective Forum, which is officially open today!
In the forum you’ll find a place to post about your upcoming reading, or a discount offer for your show. If you’re looking for a job, we’ve got classifieds. If you’re looking for a producer, here’s where to pitch your project. You’ll even find a spot to post questions for me.
And yeah, there’s also a place for you to talk about how much you love Aspects of Love.
When I started this blog almost seven years ago, I had a theory . . . “There are a lot of people out there just as passionate about creating and producing theater as I am. Imagine what we could do if we could get them all together.”
I hope the forum helps you do whatever it is you’ve been dreaming about doing.
