I’m taking this social and going on the road.

For the past three years, I’ve had Producer’s Perspective socials here in NYC.  And they’ve been a blast.  They’re a chance for all different kinds of people with one thing in common (a love of theater) to come together, say hello, argue about the actual size of the Spider-Man budget, and, of course, have some bar food and beer.

Since I’m going to be in Chicago and LA in January teaching seminars, I thought . . . why not have socials in each city?

So we are!

On Saturday, January 15th, we’ll be holding the first Producer’s Perspective Social in CHICAGO!

Here are the deets:

THE SOCIAL IN CHICAGO
Saturday, January 15th
Declan’s Irish Pub (I’m half Irish – I’ll bet you $50 you can’t guess the other half.)
1240 N. Wells St.
Chicago, IL
8 – 10 PM

Your first drink and some munchies are on me!

Spread the word, Chicagoites.  I’m counting on all you Illinois theater folks to turn out and prove to me why Chicago is a better theater city than NYC.

Space is limited.  Click here to RSVP for The Social in Chicago.

Hold on to your surfboards, my tanned friends, we’re having one in LA as well!

Here are the deets:

THE SOCIAL IN LA
Saturday, January 29th
Dillon’s Irish Pub & Grill
6263 Hollywood Blvd
Los Angeles, CA
8 – 10 PM

Same deal.  First drink and munchies are on me.  And I’m counting on all you LA theater folks to turn out and prove that LA is actually a theater town.  (See, that was low, so you have to come to the social and put me in my place!)

So Midwesterners and West Coasterererers, come one, come all, whether you read the blog or not.  I’ll see you all at the socials!

What and who is an impresario?

Merrick, Mackintosh, Drabinsky . . .

All of these producers have been called impresarios during their careers (Drabinsky has been called a few other names most recently).

But what exactly is an “impresario?”

Thanks to one of my favorite readers, Laura M., for sending me this article that appeared in a Minneapolis paper with some great quotes about what impresarios do.  (BTW, Minneapolis is one of the greatest non-big-city theater towns in the country.  I’d even take it over my hometown of Boston and over LA.  NYC, Chicago and then Minneapolis, IMHO.)

Now that you know what an impresario is, you have to ask yourself if you really want to be one?
