Play my Tony pool! Win an iPad!

Woo-woo!  Sharpen your electronic pencils and prepare to pick your winners . . . and maybe you’ll be a big winner yourself!

Tony Awards can equal big business for Producers, so being able to determine which shows will take home trophies is something all Producers should practice.

Now we can all practice with the 3rd Annual Producer’s Perspective Tony Pool!

If you’re new to the blog and didn’t play last year, here’s how it works: the person who picks the most winners wins!  As simple as an R&H melody!

What do you win?

Here are the prizes:

GRAND PRIZE:  An iPad!

FIRST PRIZE:  A Kindle

SECOND PRIZE:  A $50 Amazon Gift Certificate

This year, I’m also adding a special PERFECT SCORE Bonus of $100 CASH!  If anyone out there picks ALL of the winners, you’ll get a bonus 100 bucks.  (I’m dying to give that away so pick carefully!)

To play, click the link here and pick away!

 

The rules of the game and the restrictions are all on the ballot, but a few super important ones:

– Only one entry per reader.  Multiple entries will disqualify all of your entries.

– In order to verify entries, only email subscribers to the blog are eligible.  If you are not an email subscriber, use the box on the upper left of this page to subscribe now.

– Make sure you fill out ALL of the information on the “Verification Page” of your entry.  Incomplete entries (and there were a few last year) cannot be counted.

– When asked for your email on the “Verification Page”, make sure you enter the same email that you use to subscribe to the blog. 

Please read all of the rules carefully on the site before submitting your entry!  Don’t forget, you’re picking what you think WILL win, not what you want to win. 

The Tony Pool will officially close on Thursday, June 10th at 11:59 PM, so don’t delay, play today!

Good luck to all of you and the nominees!

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).

If you’re not a subscriber, sign up today.  Just fill out the box in the upper left hand corner and you’ll get me in your inbox every night about 8 PM.

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.

We get a lot of scripts, so we’re gonna do something with them!

Introducing . . . The Davenport Theatrical Developmental Reading Series!

It amazes me how many passionate writers are out there in the world.

Every day, scripts are submitted to us from people just like you; people that committed their idea to paper, and now want to share it with as many people as possible.

I have been brainstorming all year on how to thank all of you for your submissions and give you some sort of props for your passion to the process.

I thought about scriptwriting contests with cash prizes, group dramaturgical sessions, and so on.  At the end of the day, I decided that what writers really want, even more than money, is to have their stuff performed.

So, I am starting the Davenport Theatrical Developmental Reading Series to do just that.

This year, DTE will produce four readings of new works (plays and/or musicals) that have been submitted to us through our regular submissions process.

In other words, we’ll help you get your show off the ground!

We will pay all expenses for the reading.   We will help you find a director if you need one.  We will help you cast your reading.  We will help you with dramaturgy.  We’ll handle RSVPs.  We’ll send out a press release.  We will prepare a post show quantitative and qualitative survey for your audience.

We will help you with whatever you need help with.

And then, we’ll all hear your piece the way it was meant to be heard . . . out loud!  Because dramatic writing doesn’t exist on paper.  It needs people to speak it, and people to see it.

The readings will take place at 8 PM on the following dates:

Monday, March 15th
Monday, June 14th
Monday, September 13th
Monday, December 13th

Location, TBD.

Whether you’re a writer or not, you should save the date, because guess who’s going to be invited first?  Yep – Producer Perspective subscribers!  (If you haven’t subscribed to the blog yet, you can subscribe by putting your email in the box underneath my pic.)

How do you apply for one of the four slots?  Submit your script to us by following these instructions.  Your script will automatically be considered.  (FYI, if you’ve submitted to us in the past, no need to submit the same material to us again.  We keep records of submissions and will comb through previously received scripts for consideration.)

If we select your piece, you will be contacted by the Artistic Director of the series, Jane Caplow, who will give you further instructions.

On the day of each reading, I will announce the next project for the series (i.e. I will announce the show to be read on June 14th on March 15th).

So what is the inaugural project?

On March 15th we will christen the DTDRS with Alex Webb’s Amelia, a Civil War-set romance in which two performers embody separated loves – and a diverse wider society.

See you on the 15th!
