It’s a Godspell Virtual Reunion and You Are Invited!!!

My mom tells me that the first time she ever felt me “kick” was when she saw Godspell back in 1972 at the Wilbur Theater in Boston.  Something about the theater and that show got me going.

That’s why I always said it was destiny that the first Broadway show I lead produced was the revival of Godspell in 2011.

It was one of the most amazing experiences of my personal and professional life . . . especially because of the incredible company that we assembled for that journey.

One of the first questions I asked Stephen Schwartz when I was coming up with the marketing plan for the show was “Can you tell me, from The Author’s Perspective, what is Godspell about?”

His answer . . .

Godspell is about a community of people coming together.

Since Stephen appeared on my livestream two weeks ago, I’ve been thinking about him, the message of that show and this crazy time we’re living in right now.

That’s when I said . . . well, we all know that during this CoronaCrisis we can’t “come together” like we usually would.

But that doesn’t stop theater people!  And it doesn’t stop Godspell.

That’s why, this Sunday, yes EASTER SUNDAY (it is Godspell after all), I’m reuniting the company of Godspell for a virtual reunion!

Look who’s gonna be there!

Nick BlaemireChristopher GattelliDaniel GoldsteinMorgan JamesEric Michael KropTelly LeungCorey MachJulia Mattison, Hunter ParrishAnna Maria Perez de TagleGeorge SalazarWallace Smith, and more!

We’re going to talk about how we’re all doing, discuss our favorite memories, talk about trampolines, and lots more.

I can’t wait.

To tune in Sunday, April 12th at 8pm EDT. . . You can set your reminder here on my Facebook page. Don’t forget to let your friends know!

Hope to see you all there.

 

Oh, and here’s a little something to remind you of the beauty of that production.

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).

This series continues EVERY NIGHT through the shutdown.  Tomorrow, we’ve got Be More Chill Producer, Jennifer Tepper!  To see the full line-up for the next few weeks, visit www.theproducersperspective.com/LIVE.
