An Elite Mastermind with Ken Davenport and Tony Award-Winning Guest Speakers

How much could you advance your career in 2019 by surrounding yourself with other like-minded theatre professionals all working to achieve their goals?

You have a choice to go at this business alone, or be a part of an elite training and mastermind group led by Tony Award-winning Broadway Producer Ken Davenport with special guest VIP speakers like Tony Award winner Dori Berinstein, Tony Award winner Joe DiPietro, Tony Award nominee Rick Elice, Tony Award winner Robyn Goodman, Tony Award winner Todd Haimes, Tony Award winner Hal Luftig, Tony Award winner Joe Mantello, Tony Award nominee Glenn Slater and more.

Imagine . . . you walk into a room full of your peers, industry leaders and theatre legends and EVERYONE knows your name. It’s not what you know or even who you know in this business . . . it’s who knows YOU.

One connections, in an instant, can change the trajectory of your career. Connections create shortcuts, community and opportunity for collaboration.

Many of our Inner Circle members have formed meaningful collaborations together, and you could too.

Each quarter Inner Circle members gather in New York City for an intimate weekend of Mastermind style training sessions where they tackle specific issues pertaining to their shows in “hotseat” sessions, as well as hear from top industry leaders on various aspects of the business. Participants are able to spend time speaking with distinguished VIP guest speakers in a Q&A session, as well as converse with them individually post-session.

In addition to these incredible weekend Mastermind events, Inner Circle Members also receive all the benefits of being a Lead Producer on Lead Producer on The Producer’s Perspective PRO, as well as exclusive perks that you can’t find (or buy) anywhere else.

Inner Circle is your best chance to work with the most brilliant and successful minds in the business, share insider information, and for partnerships that can last a lifetime. Our goal is to:

  1. Bring together the best in the business to share strategies, solve problems and create action.
  2. To nurture partnerships and collaboration between members.
  3. To create a supportive group of ARTrepreneurs who each intimately understand the struggles and joys of getting show from the page to the stage, and one where no member is left behind.
  4. To provide a much needed peer accountability group that holds members accountable to achieve their highest potential.

In addition to the value each member brings to the group, you also receive personal guidance from Ken Davenport along your journey. Ken facilitates each hot seat, moderates discussions with Broadway legends and helps you create clear action items each quarter to then report on the following session.

When you’re with us you’re a part of an exclusive club that will feel like you have someone at your side every step of the way, because you will. We’ll take care of you and make sure that anything you need is available, and if it’s not, we’ll get it for you. You will be surrounded by peers that you look up to, and admire, and can learn from.

So if your goal is to kick your career in high gear in 2019, then the Inner Circle is the #1 way to hold yourself accountable for your own success and learn from the best in the business while forging new connections that could take you to the next stage.

Applications for Inner Circle are accepted throughout the year, and phone interviews are scheduled between January 1st – 24th, 2019. Apply today to be considered for Inner Circle 2019.

Writers/Producers of Emergency The Musical

How would 2 guys from the Midwest, where corn and cows set the scene, fit in the New York City theatre world? Our welcome couldn’t have been warmer. Ken and his team made us feel very at ease, and we quickly became friends with our colleagues in the group. Now, 9 months into our program, we have written a second musical called One Night Only, have produced the world premiere of Emergency to fantastic critical reviews, released our tracks on Spotify and iTunes and we're setting our sights on a full production of our show in New York City in 2019. None of this would be possible without Ken Davenport and The Inner Circle.

When we joined the Inner Circle, Bonhoeffer the Musical was on the seemingly interminable treadmill of one rewrite after another. Now, though, it not only has a couple of NYC readings and three resoundingly successful concerts under its belt, we are looking forward to a 29-hour reading on December 14, 2018 at off-Broadway’s own Signature Theater on 42nd Street. We have every confidence that, with the Inner Circle’s continued assistance, we’ll be able to achieve our goal of opening Bonhoeffer the Musical on Broadway itself in the shortest possible time.

Ken Davenport and the Inner Circle helped me rediscover my dream, and in doing so, reconnect to the person who fell in love with musical theatre when he was just a boy. From Ken’s first advice to me, “Go book a theatre and put up your show,” to the invaluable action items Ken gave me through consultations, seminars, webinars and interactions at Inner Circle meetings, I am no longer afraid to be true to myself. Also, networking, sharing, and learning from my fellow Inner Circle members and various Tony Award-winning artists who meet with us regularly has filled my toolbox for many years to come.
