Introducing the new and improved Producer’s Perspective!

Whatta ya think?  Like the new look?

My blog got a face-lift last night, and some skin-bleaching as well, so if you’re reading this in an email or in an RSS feed, click here to view the new site and check it out!

We’ve gotten a lot more organized to help you find the things that you’re looking for, from jobs to resources, to the most popular blogs from the last 2.5 years.

As always, feedback is encouraged.  Comment by clicking on the comment button below this entry (email subscribers, you have to visit the site first).

For those of you who like reading on the web, my blogs go live every weekday at 11 AM EST.  As regular as a morning show.

Special thanks to my design team of one, Ms. JLB, for the new ‘do.

Let me know what you think!

Oh, and if your site needs a facelift, get to it.  The great thing about websites is that you can add new features in seconds.  The bad thing is that after a year or so of new features, they start to look like Mr. Potato Head.

After a while, you gotta take off the nose, the ears and start all over again.

Need a job? Look no further.

Earlier this week I talked about how we get a lot of script submissions, workshop invitations, and so on, sent to our site, which is why we started our reading series.  Well, the 2nd most popular inquiry at The Producer’s Perspective is about how to get a job in the Broadway or Off-Broadway arena.

Getting a job in the Broadway or Off-Broadway theater world ain’t easy.  It’s not that it requires the skills of a surgeon, it’s just that it’s a very closed-door community that likes to hire from within.  So, sometimes it’s hard to pry that door open.

The good news?

Once you do get that door open and get inside (and you will), that door usually slams shut and we never let you out.

But where do you find those jobs?

Right here!

Introducing the Classifieds on ProducersPerspective.com!

As a response to the many of you that are looking for opportunities in the theater job market, and since it’s 10:1 bet that people reading theater blogs are probably the most qualified group of applicants out there, I thought I’d house a place on the site where those with the jobs can reach those of you looking for jobs.

There are categories in the Classifieds for all different types of gigs. We’ll even be including some auditions for the actors that I know read the blog.

In the future, we’ll be expanding the Classifieds to include all sorts of stuff that creators of theater are looking for, from space rental to writing partners to a live boa constrictor for that Adam ‘N Eve musical you’re working on.

We’re hoping to be the Match.com of the producing world.

Here’s the page.

Check back often, because it will be constantly updated.  Or add it to you RSS and get constantly updated.   And we’ll have a signpost on the home page of the site reminding you as well.

Here’s to seeing what’s behind the door in 2010.

Employers looking for the best set of theater applicants on the web can learn how to post their job by emailing classifieds@theproducersperspective.com.
