ABOUT THIS EPISODE:

After 6.5 years of podcastin’ with our industry’s greatest theatermakers, I’m putting down the microphone . . . for now.

Stay subscribed because there’s always something up my sleeve! And if you’re ever looking for encouragement or inspiration to keep goin’, I highly recommend any of these 250 episodes. 

My mission is to get more people talking about the theater.  The more people talking about it, the more people who want to make it, perform it, support it, etc.  And that’s how theater not only survives, but thrives.

I thank you and the theater thanks you!

Podcast Episode #249: Answering 10 FAQs on Broadway Investing

ESTIMATED LISTENING TIME OF THIS EPISODE: 21 Minutes

 

LISTEN WHEREVER YOU LISTEN TO PODCASTS:

 

ABOUT THIS EPISODE:

Before I crowdfunded Godspell, I had a thesis.

“There are thousands of people out there who would love to invest in Broadway shows . . . they just don’t know how to do it, or who to talk to.”

Sure enough, when we announced our plans for Godspell, thousands of leads poured in. In between placing all those return calls I remember thinking, “Huh, will you look at that . . . I got this one right.”

Of course, not all those people invested (in the end we had about 750 investors), but thousands expressed interest and proved my thesis correct.

And all those thousands of people had questions.

Five years later, people still have questions about investing in Broadway shows. As I’ve spoken to more and more potential investors, I’ve noticed that many of the questions are the same.

That’s why I’ve created this FAQ for Broadway Investing. So whether you’re a potential Broadway Investor looking to dip your toes into our theatrical waters, or whether you’re a Producer looking to raise money for your show, I think you’ll find these Qs and their appropriate As helpful.

Podcast Episode #245: The Best Advice I Received At The Start of the Broadway Shutdown

ESTIMATED LISTENING TIME OF THIS EPISODE:  5 Minutes

ABOUT THIS EPISODE:

At the beginning of the pandemic, I called everyone I knew for advice. I’m talking big time theater people, as well as big time business people.

I got amazing advice. And it reminded me how important it was to ask for advice from others who are at places in their lives where you want to be. (And not just from a business “producer’s perspective” . . . but from a family perspective, a health perspective, a spiritual perspective, and more.)

One of the best pieces of advice I got was . . . “Ken, the people and companies who are going to come out of this ahead are the ones who are going to make use of this time.”

Podcast Episode #244: What TheaterMakers Can Learn From Simone Biles

ESTIMATED LISTENING TIME OF THIS EPISODE:  7 Minutes

ABOUT THIS EPISODE:

If you’ve been following The Olympics this year, or if you’re on the internet, you probably heard Simone Biles withdrew from an individual all-around gymnastics competition at the Tokyo Olympics in an effort to focus on her mental health and well-being, a decision which came one day after she removed herself from the team final.

Tune into my personal reaction of this news and then how I believe we can apply this lesson to all of our lives as we look to reopen the live theater industry.
