About this episode: Before I crowdfunded Godspell, I had a thesis. “There are thousands of people out there who would love to invest in Broadway shows . . . they just don’t know how to do it, or who to talk to.” Sure enough, when we announced our plans for Godspell, thousands of leads poured in. In between placing all those return calls I remember …
 
About this episode: This shutdown has lasted longer than we thought possible. And while we're (slowly) reopening now, a year and a half later, there are real reasons why our leadership waited.

Things have changed since May of 2020. Shoot, things have changed since yesterday! But since May of 2020, when I first posted my “What The Broadway Recovery Will Look Like” series? Well, dang it, can any of you have imagined that we’d only have one Broadway show running a year later? Not me. Not me. Now that we’ve been through the great theatrical …
 
I arrived in New York City during the Golden Age of Off-Broadway. Forever Plaid, Nunsense, And The World Goes Round, Cryptogram, Family Secrets, and more, were a few of the shows running in theaters under 499 seats . . . in commercial productions! And many actually recouped! Referenced in this episode: The TheaterMakers Facebook Group: www.facebook…
 
At the beginning of the pandemic, I called everyone I knew for advice. I’m talking big time theater people, as well as big time business people. I got amazing advice. And it reminded me how important it was to ask for advice from others who are at places in their lives where you want to be. (And not just from a business “producer’s perspective” . .…
 
If you've been following The Olympics this year, or if you're on the internet, you probably heard Simone Biles withdrew from an individual all-around gymnastics competition at the Tokyo Olympics in an effort to focus on her mental health and well-being, a decision which came one day after she removed herself from the team final. Tune into my person…
 
Remember infomercials? Late night shopping, 'as seen on TV' commercials? I discovered what worked with those commercials and how the most successful plays/musicals used a very similar technique.

In the early 2000s, I met with one of the most powerful people in Hollywood. We discussed the differences between the business models of theater and film.

After watching one of the most recent NYC Mayoral debates this year, I realized one profession who has to raise more money than a Broadway Producer is a Politician.

When I was in college at Tisch, I, like every other student at NYU, tried to get into nightclubs on the weekend. And for some reason, the fancy door people, with their super chic outfits, always turned me away. In hindsight, it might have something to do with my khaki pants from The Gap, white shirt from The Gap and blue blazer . . . from JC Penney…
 
Sitting on the other side of the table is something that every actor should do. It’s incredibly educational and inspirational because frankly, you realize that while there are lots and lots of people who call themselves actors, there's a much smaller group of actors (and talent is only a small part of that definition, by the by). Since so few actor…
 
It has been 10 years (!) since I crowdfunded Godspell. It remains one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done in this business. It took two years to put together. It took three law firms. I had to pass a securities exam. Oh, and let me tell you when this SEC slaps your wrist in the midst of your offering, you lose some sleep. But, like most dif…
 
As the theater comes back to life, marketing is going to be more important than ever before. But before we start advertising, there are things we need to do first: ask our audience how they're feeling about returning, what's on their minds about the return of theater, what type of theater they are in the mood to see, etc. Referenced in this episode…
