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.)

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

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.

And tune in tonight to catch me and Stephen Flaherty (Once on this Island, Ragtime, etc.) as we see what he’s working on during the shutdown.

The Producer’s Perspective LIVE! Episode 5: Rick Miramontez

As expected, last night’s livestream with the hilarious Alex Brightman was a hoot.  If you missed it, you must go back and watch and hear his . . .

  • Advice for young performers looking to make a go of it
  • How he is channeling his creative energy that he can’t put into Beetlejuice right now into his writing (and how it’s working!).
  • What he sings to his dog, Kevin, on their daily walks.

And the fun doesn’t stop there!

Tonight, we’re hanging out with Rick Miramontez, a super powered Press Agent for the biggest Broadway shows and celebrities.  He’ll give us his insights into what’s happening to the business side right now, and what he expects it to look like when our lights go back on.

And he’s always good for some gossip, as well.  🙂

You can find Rick 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 4: Alex Brightman

A big thank you to the joyous Sierra Boggess who was such a bright light for all of us during last night’s  Producers’s Perspective LIVE.  If you missed it, you must go back and watch . . . she gives great tips on how to get through these days, including setting your own routines, virtual ballet barres, and how to avoid irritating your neighbors when you’re singing showtunes.

And TONIGHT, more fun with Sierra’s costar from School of Rock and the current star of Beetlejuice, Mr. Alex Brightman!

When Alex and I sat down at BroadwayCon a few weeks back, we didn’t think we’d be seeing each other so soon.  But leave it to this effin’ virus to bring us back together again.

Tune in tonight to hear how he’s getting through each day, what he’s working on (he’s a writer too), and well, I’d also be prepared to laugh.  It is Alex Brightman, after all.

You can see Alex 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).
