Community Gathering on Zoom - register above to receive the Zoom link.
A producer goes by many names these days: Creative Producer, Fundraising Producer, Self-Producing Artist, Producing Associate. Have you thought about what type of producer you are and how that informs your career? This conversation will revolve around the exploration of producing as an Art. Join a panel of guest speakers who will share their perspectives and attempt to bridge the divide between the "us vs. them" mentality in theater between artists and producers. Is there #AnotherWay?
In the room: commercial producers Tom Polum (The Toxic Avenger, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, founder of StreamingMusicals.com) and Patricia Klausner (Tony award for The Band's Visit and Pippin revival, Scottsboro Boys, Stick Fly, upcoming Marie); Tony winning actress, director and producer Tonya Pinkins (Jelly's Last Jam, Caroline or Change; TV's Livia Frye on All My Children); performing artist, producer and activist Maria Aponte (Latina 50 Plus). Moderated by Emileena Pedigo of The Show Goes On Productions.
