The economy is clearly recovering, so maybe it’s time to take those projects off the back burner and move ahead. For producers, that means finding the money and resources to bring your projects into production. We invite you to acquire some basic tools and crucial information that will help you to function effectively in hard times and the better days that are surely here. From pitching techniques and presentation skills to legal requirements and effective business planning, plus a wealth of first-hand experience from more than a half dozen producers who are currently active in the Broadway and off-Broadway worlds, we promise you an informative, empowering and inspiring day.
Faculty this year will include Broadway producers Doug Denoff (Nice Work If You Can Get It, The 39 Steps), RK Greene (Peter & the Starcatcher, Cougar, Room Service), Jeremy Handelman (On the Town, F#@king Up Everything), Cheryl Wiesenfeld (Rocky, Legally Blonde, Tony Awards for: All the Way, Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike, The Gershwin’s Porgy & Bess, Elaine Stritch: At Liberty) and Richard Winkler (Something Rotten, Disgraced, You Can’t Take It With You, Tony Awards for Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike, Cage Aux Folle, Memphis, The Norman Conquests); producer/investors Neil Danoff (The Audience, Something Rotten, Bridges of Madison County, All the Way) and James Simon (Hand to God, Something Rotten, Pippin); plus attorneys Eric Goldman and Erach Screwvala, and financial advisor Bailie Slevin. Workshop will include a business plan intensive, given by producer RK Greene – come away with an easy template for organizing your ask.
