Abroad Perspective: The Potential for International Theater Partnerships
Friday 7/19/24, at 5:00pm ET

Community Gathering on Zoom - register with the bright red reservation box to receive the Zoom link. These gatherings are a service for the theater community and are offered free for TRU members; we ask that non-members help keep us running by buying a ticket, making a donation or joining as a member.

In the room: Chris Grady, producer, director at CGO Institute, fellow of the Royal Society for the Arts, staunch networker; Martin Platt of Perry Street Theatricals general management, producer (Tony winner for Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike; also Dames at Sea revival, Bedlam's Hamlet/St. Joan, off-Broadway award winning In the Continuum and an oak tree; Lend Me a Tenor musical in London). After two years of shutdown dominated by zoom, like it or not we have entered an era of greater global opportunity in theater. And we have (hopefully) discovered colleagues beyond our national borders. Martin has produced both in the US and the UK, and can address the differences, plus some of the advantages (and challenges) of partnerships. Chris is actively engaged in current initiatives to foster stronger ties among producers, including a database to link producers from different countries as he puts his focus on international collaborations that generate opportunities to find what connects us all as human beings. With quarantine behind us, let's consider ways to broaden our horizons as we move our projects forward once again.
