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!!!!

 

But first . . . the finalists!

 And the winner of all that TP is . . . David and Paul Rigano in their epic, “Screen to Screen”!

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!).
