The Producer’s Perspective LIVE! Episode 9: Be More Chill Producer Jennifer Tepper

If there was ever an “All Broadway” version of Jeopardy, and Jen Tepper was a contestant, no one would ever even get a chance to answer a question, never mind score some bucks.

And she’s my guest on tonight’s live stream!

She was also one of the Lead Producers of Be More Chill and Broadway Bounty Hunter and helped make both internet sensations.

Tune in tonight on my Facebook page to catch me and Jen at 8 PM EDT! (Click here to get an e-reminder!).

The Producer’s Perspective LIVE! Episode 8: Steven Sater

Happy one week anniversary!

It’s already been a week since we launched The Producer’s Perspective LIVE!and I hope you’re enjoying them, learning from them, and that they are giving you a little pick-me-up as we wade through this down-time together.

And even if you’re not enjoying them, well, we’re going to keep doing them, so there.

One of the reasons why we’re livestreaming every single night is to raise money for The Actors Fund, and get this . . . you can now give-a-little on my Facebook page.  We’ve already got over $500 earmarked for artists and more who are struggling through this crisis, so click here and give a little if you can.)

Last night on the livestream we had Pam MacKinnon, the Artistic Director of American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco join us from her chair that Uma Thurman sat in (you’ll understand that reference when you watch the replay here.)

She talked about . . .

  • What an Artistic Director does . . . and how it differs from theater to theater.
  • Why she doesn’t “block” shows.
  • How ACT started streaming shows as the crisis unfolded.

And more.

To watch the replay, click here.

And tune in tonight to catch Steven Sater (Spring Awakening, Alice By Heart, etc.) on the stream to we see what he’s been up to during the shutdown and what new musicals he is working on (spoiler – he’s got a few – including one that I’m involved in!)

You can find Steven and me LIVE tonight on my Facebook page at 8 PM EDT! (Click here to get an e-reminder!).

(Oh, and you can also watch it through the Broadway Podcast Network which is streaming the livestream through their Youtube channel.)

See you tonight at 8 pm EDT (7 pm CDT/6 pm MDT/5 pm PDT).

The Producer’s Perspective LIVE! Episode 7: Pam MacKinnon

Last night we had our second “Stephen” of the week on the ol’ Livestream, when Stephen Flaherty joined us from . . . another country!  (You’ll have to watch the replay here to find out exactly where the Tony Award-winner is hunkered down.)

In addition to revealing where his musical theater bunker is, Stephen also talked about . . .

  • His new musical, Knoxville, and what it was like to be so close to its world premiere only to have it scuttled . . . and how he stays positive about it.
  • How his “next show” is always influenced by his last show.
  • The “magic” of composition and how melodies come to him.

Tonight, our first Director on the Livestream!

Join me tonight when I stream with award-winning Broadway Director, Pam McKinnon (Amélie, The Parisian Woman) and the still-new-to-her-post, Artistic Director of The American Conservatory Theater in San Fran!

She’s going to tell us not only how she keeps her creative juices flowing, but how she keeps her THEATER going during this crisis (I hear they are doing some streaming of their own!).

Pam and I will be LIVE tonight on my Facebook page at 8 PM EDT! (Click here to get an e-reminder!).

(Don’t have Facebook? You can watch the livestream through the Broadway Podcast Network which is streaming it through their Youtube channel.)

The Producer’s Perspective LIVE! Episode 6: Stephen Flaherty

Hi all!  Happy . . . er, ah, what day is it?  Does anyone know?

I may have lost track with what day it is, but I do know that tonight at 8 PM EDT is Episode #6 of our Producer’s Perspective LIVE series, with none other than Tony Award winning Composer, Mr. Stephen Flaherty!

But first, a big thank you to PR Superstar Rick Miramontez who joined us last night and filled us in on . . .

  • His insight into what’s going to happen when Broadway’s curtain goes back up.
  • What his favorite Broadway “stunt” was . . .
  • How he came up with the PR Strategy for Spiderman and what Conan O’Brien has to do with it.

And lots more.
