What do Happy Days, Cheers and Law & Order all have in common with this blog?
They’ve all produced a spin-off!
Last week, I revealed the results of my Producer’s Perspective survey about who you were and what you were interested in. In the comments section of the survey, there was an outpouring of requests like these for a more insider perspective on producing:
- “I want to know what a Producer does every day when putting together a Broadway show.”
- “Can you give me more info on the day to day of what you do? I still don’t know what a Producer does besides raise money and go to Sardi’s.”
- “I want to sit on your shoulder and see what you see.”
I racked my brain on how I could deliver what you wanted. And then I thought, wait a minute, I’m lead producing a Broadway show this season. And wait a minute, I’m exactly 100 days from my first preview. And wait a minute, I could . . . BING-TO-THE-O!
So . . . you asked! You got it! (But dude who wants to sit on my shoulder, I am assuming you mean figuratively because a linebacker I am not.)
Today, I am proud to announce the debut of my second blog entitled:
DAY BY DAY – The Producer’s Perspective: A day-by-day account of producing Godspell on Broadway.
Yesterday, we were exactly 100 days from our first preview on October 13th. So, I started posting and will continue to post an entry a day as we countdown the 100 days to Godspell’s first preview on Broadway.
Each day I’ll blog about something that happened that I had to deal with. Maybe it’ll be what was discussed at an ad meeting, how many people showed up at the open call, the first time I saw some costume sketches, etc. There will be lots of pictures, video, and maybe even some guest blogs from some of the Godspell team along the way.
It’ll be like you’re e-sitting on my shoulder as we produce the first ever Broadway revival of Godspell. Oh, and after a little research, we think this is the first time this has ever been done, so it keeps with my company’s mission statement of doing #$&@ that hasn’t been done.

And make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss even one of those days. Unlike Law & Order, there won’t be repeats on TNT.
Thanks again for the survey-inspiration . . . and enjoy the spinoff! I think it’ll be exactly what you are looking for.
Or at least it’ll be better than Joanie Loves Chachi.
