STOP US IF ANY OF THIS SOUNDS FAMILIAR...
- You have a great idea for a show, but don't know where to start...
- You've written or gotten the rights to a show, and you're not sure what to do next...
- You've spent countless hours rehearsing and putting on readings, but you feel stuck and can't seem to break through...
- You're struggling to raise the money you need to get your show off the ground...
THAT'S WHAT INSPIRED US TO BUILD THE PRODUCER'S PERSPECTIVE PRO
You're here because one of our current PRO members recommended our PROgram to you, so we owe your pal a huge high five for bringing you to us . . . and we're confident you'll owe them one too 🙂
The Producer's Perspective PRO is an online training program, resource guide and active community for theatre professionals looking to advance their productions and careers.
Through a combination of online training courses taught by Tony Award-winning Broadway Producer Ken Davenport, monthly Live Office Hours Calls with Ken, weekly tips, monthly industry newsletters, a private Facebook Group, and in person networking events, The Producer's Perspective PRO enables Writers, Producers, Actors, Directors, General Managers and other professionals to learn in the way that best suits their needs.
Members are able to log into our online portal anytime to take their available 16+ courses, access replays of past Office Hours, watch archival videos of all the panels and presentations from our Super Conference (2018 and 2017), browse through our Marketing Toolkit, search for monthly play submission opportunities, enter our quarterly PRO Reading Series competition, or even peruse our Writer, Actor and Director Databases for potential collaborators.
Monthly Mixers are held in New York City for members local to New York, or able to travel, while additional networking opportunities are available through a Private Facebook Group to keep "out of town" members connected and engaged. This Facebook Group is also an excellent resource for asking questions of the group and our team, learning about play submission opportunities, accessing special PRO member discounts, promoting your own work, and so much more.
If you're looking for answers to questions like "how do I produce a play," or "how to I find a Broadway producer," or even "how do I get my show to Broadway," then The Producer's Perspective PRO is for you!
MEET THE PRODUCER BEHIND THE PRODUCER'S PERSPECTIVE PRO
Ken Davenport - Tony Award Winning Broadway Producer
Ken is a Tony Award-winning producer of Broadway and Off Broadway shows, including most recently Groundhog Day: The Musical, Deaf West’s Spring Awakening, and The Play That Goes Wrong, as well as the upcoming Broadway revival of Once On This Island and original musical Gettin’ the Band Back Together. Davenport has revolutionized the Broadway market with his diverse approaches at engaging audiences through his shows, as well as supported the Broadway ecosystem through a number of his own subsidiary businesses. He is an internationally recognized and award-winning writer of several Broadway and Off Broadway shows as well as several books about producing, Broadway investing, and how to raise money for shows. Additionally, he is the Executive Producer for North America for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Really Useful Group.
In 2004, he formed Davenport Theatrical Enterprises and began producing his own shows. His “first born” was The Awesome 80s Prom, which ran for 10 years, followed quickly by the Outer Critics Circle Award-Winning Best Musical Altar Boyz, and My First Time, which has been seen in over 20 countries worldwide. He was the first producer to have three shows running simultaneously Off Broadway. All three shows recouped their investment.
He returned to Broadway soon after and since then has produced shows such as Once On This Island, Groundhog Day, The Play That Goes Wrong, Deaf West’s Spring Awakening, 13, Will Ferrell’s You’re Welcome America, Godspell, Kinky Boots, Macbeth, The Bridges of Madison County, Mothers and Sons, It’s Only A Play and The Visit. Ken is also producing the upcoming original Broadway Musical Gettin’ the Band Back Together of which he also co-wrote the book.
