A Conversation with Literary Agents: How Shutdown Has Changed the Business
Friday 5/20, 2022 at 5:00 eastern time

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 making a donation or joining as a member.

In the room: Kate Bussert/Bret Adams Ltd., Bonnie Davis/Bret Adams Ltd., Katie Gamelli/Paladin Artists and Lucy Powis/A3 Artists Agency. The effect of the shutdown on the role of literary agents: how contracts have changed, and the way of doing business in general has evolved. Will some of the changes remain even as live theater is reopening? Has the shutdown affected the development of new works, and has the role of an agent shifted in any way? Are opportunities for new works to flourish still limited, or simply different?
