The first copy was too big.
The second was too blurry.
The third copy was juuuuuussssst right.
And so went the Goldilocks-like journey of publishing my new book, CAST OF MENTORS: SHORT SAGE ADVICE FROM 50 BROADWAY SUPERPOWERS.
You can order the “just right” version right here, just in time for the holidays.
One thing I do guarantee . . . the advice in this book, from A-listers like Terrence McNally, Joe Mantello, Mandy Gonzalez, Kenny Leon, Pasek & Paul, and so on is “juuuuuust perfect.”
There’s an answer in this book for every question a TheaterMaker might have, from a college student with a BA in theater graduating in the middle of a pandemic, to a professional producer with awards on his mantle who is still looking for his West Side Story (ok, ok, that might be me.)
Oh, and the hardcover version looks cool on a coffee table.
Get it here. If it doesn’t help you, let me know. We’ll give your money back to you. And you don’t even have to return the book . . . you just have to give it to another TheaterMaker. Because I know the words of these Mentors will inspire the right people to do great things . . . on and off the stage.
Cheyenne Jackson left Seattle in 2002 to pursue a career on Broadway.
His jet lag hadn’t even worn off when he was offered his first job.
How do I know? Because I was the one who offered it to him.
I was the Company Manager of Thoroughly Modern Millie, and seconds after his audition, the director, Michael Mayer, called me and said, “Ken! Make sure you get to his agent today! This guy is a star!”
We got him for Millie. And yeah, it was clear he was a super-talent. And was destined for success.
But it was more than talent that got him cast in Xanadu, All Shook Up, Flight 93, American Horror Story, 30 Rock . . . and sold out Carnegie Hall 2x, etc., etc.
What is it?
I’ll tell you on my livestream when I interview him tonight! (And it has to do with how we were lucky enough to have him in the original NYMF cast of Altar Boyz.)
Join me and Cheyenne tonight at 8 PM EDT! Set a reminder here!
