People ask me all the time what a Producer actually does.
My new answer? I get people in a room.
I get Writers in a room. I get Directors in a room. I get Actors in a room. And when the right combination of people and passion mix together . . . boom . . . a magnificent thing is created.
The trick is . . . there are passionate and talented TheaterMakers all over the WORLD who want to be in a room with other folks just like them.
I know that because we’re going on 11 years with this blog and 5 with the podcast, and you wouldn’t believe where some of our e-traffic comes from (Russia, South Africa . . . Sri Lanka anyone?).
That’s why a couple of years ago I created an e-room for Writers, Producers, Investors, Actors and all kinds of Theater Makers to gather called TheProducersPerspectivePRO.
Since then, this community, just like the popularity of theater itself, has grown more than I ever could have imagined. And when things grow, they take on a life of their own . . . and it’s important to change as the thing you’ve created changes (I’m already learning this as a new parent!).
About six months ago, we realized we weren’t TheProducersPerspectivePRO anymore. We weren’t just an offshoot of the blog for people looking for more education.
We were a new community of theatrical artrepreneurs who were looking to learn, grow, gather and . . . make more @#$%.
That’s why we just retired PRO and launched a brand-spankin’ new community with a new look, new content, and a new mission to help all the TheaterMakers out there accomplish their theatrical goals, no matter what your discipline.
You may not be IN an actual room, but it’s the next best thing. And we know, for a fact, that TheProducerPerspectivePRO helped launch a whole bunch of shows just by gathering passionate like-minded people together online.
And this brand new community will do the same . . . but on steroids.
So if you’re a TheaterMaker . . . or even better, want to be one . . . join us.
There’s no other place like it on the web.
And we can all help each other do what we all want to do more than anything . . . Make theater.
