THAT'S WHAT INSPIRED US TO BUILD THE PRODUCER'S PERSPECTIVE PRO
The Producer's Perspective PRO is an online training program, resource guide and active community for theatre professionals looking to advance their production or career.
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, 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 courses, access replays of past Office Hours, browse through our Marketing Toolkit, 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, Ken 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 do I find a Broadway producer," or even "how do I get my show to Broadway," then The Producer's Perspective PRO is for you!
REAL PEOPLE, REAL MEMBERS, REAL SUCCESS
The Producer's Perspective PRO community gave me the confidence I needed to determine that I could pursue theatre full time. In December, I notified my current employer that I would be leaving at the end of my contract in June. Not that I advocate everyone quit their jobs to pursue their passions, but if you can, you should!Ken's PRO program helped make this possible for me.Harold Heno
My favorite part of being a Pro is that I get to meet people who I might not ordinarily meet. We are all doing the same thing. We all have the same goal, we all have the same ambitions. Plus, the resources of the PRO website are amazing, you couldn’t take four years at NYU and get that much knowledge.Michael D.
I decided to join PRO as an Associate Producer after I was introduced to Ken several months ago. I believe that he graciously opens the door to those of us who are not “insiders” in the NYC theatre community. Ken builds the bridge from our passion for theatre to the launching our theatre dreams on the New York stage.Dr. Cherie S.
Being a member of PRO has helped me get my script (which wasn't even finished when I started) into a festival at a premier regional theatre! The courses are worth every penny alone, but Summer's recommendations each month for play submission opportunities has been so helpful!Amy D.
For the past several months I have had the pleasure and the opportunity to work with Tony-Award Winning Producer Ken Davenport. Ken has consistently struck me as a man with a mission, passionately dedicated to an “impossible dream;’” getting literally thousands of new shows “off the ground.” And though my time working with Ken and his staff as an “Associate Pro” has been brief, I have spent a lifetime in the business and I can say, with confidence, Ken Davenport is every inch a pro and I heartily endorse him and his organization as a producer and as a mentor to producers.Jack Tierny

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.
