I Discovered The Secret of Happiness. It’s a Virtual Reunion of Daddy Long Legs!

In 2015, we streamed Daddy Long Legs LIVE to the world, and it became the very first Broadway or Off-Broadway show to take our performance virtual.

We were seen by over 150k people in 135 countries around the world.  And when all the press articles started appearing on our efforts, and when our box office went up, and when our two stars started getting recognized on the street, we knew we were on to something with this streaming thing.

And now, 5 years later, streamin’ is the only thing we have.

Since my out-of-the-box-thinking and super courageous artists on Daddy Long Legs were so instrumental in ushering in the idea of theater-to-stream, I couldn’t think of a better group to reunite online during these cray-cray times.

So, on Thursday, May 21st, I’m hosting a Daddy Long Legs Reunion on my daily livestream series, The Producer’s Perspective LIVE!, to raise money and awareness for The Actors Fund.

And look who’s gonna be there!

Megan McGinnis (Jerusha Abbott), Adam Halpin (Jervis Pendleton), John Caird (Book & Director), Paul Gordon (Music & Lyrics), and Michael Jackowitz (Producer).

Tune in to my Facebook page on Thursday, May 21st at 8pm EDT / 7pm CDT / 6pm MDT / 5pm PDT.

And if you’re like me and are now feeling super nostalgic for Daddy Long Legs, or you haven’t seen it yet (gasp), you can see it FREE on BroadwayHD. They’re running a free trial to all of you who want to see in before the reunion.  (My advice . . . watch it RIGHT before!)  Daddy has become one of the most popular titles on BroadwayHD, and when you watch it, you’ll see why.

To listen to the tear-jerkin’ recording, click here to get it on Spotify, here on Amazon, or here on Apple Music.

I look forward to seeing you on the livestream on May 21st at 8pm EDT!

 

 

P.S. Don’t have Facebook? No problem. We’re also streaming to Broadway Podcast Network’s Youtube Channel.

P.P.S. Tune in tonight at 8pm EDT. I’ll be sitting down with Ashley Park to talk about Mean Girls, KPOP, Sunday In The Park…, Thoroughly Modern Millie, and more! Join the conversation here.

Some thing(s) to make you smile.

A few episodes into the 37 (!) livestreams we’ve done so far, we added what has become one of my favorite features of these 30-minute check-ins with Broadway greats.

We end each stream with something called “Something To Make You Smile.”  It’s a quick video or link or something that . . . well . . . will make you smile.

And don’t we all need that right now?

It just dawned on me that there are some people who might not have seen the streams.

I think you’re missing out on some of the best inspiration from some of Broadway’s best TheaterMakers around.

But I didn’t want you to miss out on these “smile” moments.

So you can catch them all 30+ of them here.

Check ’em out.

I guarantee it’s a much more enjoyable scroll than the coronavirus updates on CNN.

(And if they do make you smile even a bit, give a few bucks to the Actors Fund here.


P.S. Tonight, join me for a chat with Krysta Rodriguez (Spring Awakening, First Date, NBC’s SMASH, Netflix’s DAYBREAK). We go live at 8pm EDT. Click here to set your reminder and join the conversation.

The Winner of RAVE’s Social Distancing Festival is . . .

If feels like 14 years ago when we made the announcement that our Rave Theater Festival would be hosting our first virtual Social Distancing Festival.

And in those 14 years (aka 34 days), a whole bunch of TheaterMakers got super creative and posted some brand new content, with a social distancing theme, all with the hope of winning our sought-after prize package, including . . .

* Only to be distributed when stock is aplenty.

And it is now time to announce that winner!!!!

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!).
