Why have one podcast when you can have TWO! This one is specifically for . . .

Over five years ago, I started podcasting.  And it instantly allowed me to connect with more theatergoers than ever.  I thought it might be a fad.  But nope.  (Clubhouse – now that’s a fad.)

Podcasts are here to stay.  In fact, I not only host my own, but I also listen to about a dozen, on all sorts of subjects that I want to improve in my life . . . from golf to parenting to investing in real estate (gotta do something a little less risky than the theater to keep myself diversified, right?).

Because they’ve been so helpful to me, and because I’ve gotten great feedback on my podcast, I charged my team at The TheaterMakers Studio to start one as well!

This one has a very clear and specific focus.

It’s a podcast solely for people who want to make theater.  It’s . . . well . . . The TheaterMakers Podcast!

So if you’re a writer, producer, director who wants specific, actionable tips and strategies on how you can make more theater, better theater, and make it all more efficiently (translation – cheaper and faster), then this podcast is for you.  

Upcoming episodes include info on:

  • How to obtain the rights to a novel, movie or song catalog
  • Creating a memorable elevator pitch
  • Fighting writer’s block
  • Writing a one-person show and why everyone should have one
  • The different types of Broadway producers and how to decide who is best for you
  • And more!

New episodes will debut every Tuesday at 9am ET/6am PT.

You can subscribe now to The TheaterMakers Podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google and everywhere podcasts are available.

DESCRIPTION:

The term jukebox musical is now a pejorative description of any musicals that contain pre-existing music.

And it’s also a misnomer.

There are several different buckets of musicals that contain pre-existing music, and in this podcast, I break down my three different distinctions.

And I also make a case as to why many deserve a lot more respect than they are given.
