New Year, New Rules: The Updated Equity Agreements and Contracts
Thursday, January 16th
Doors open 7:00pm, panel starts 7:30
Polaris North Theater, 245 W. 29th Street
Equity is constantly evolving in an effort to serve their members fairly, and also keep up with the realities of the business. There have been some recent new understandings that have come to light, as well as some new interpretations of existing rules, and all of it will impact the way we approach early development of new work. This panel will help us learn about the new Equity development contracts: Tier 1, 2 & 3. What do they mean? How do they replace the previous terms "Workshop," "Laboratory," and other developmental contracts? Equity is changing their rules, and every producer needs to be up to speed on what the new rules are.
Panelists to include general manager Evan Bernardin of Evan Bernardin Productions (National Tours of Million Dollar Quartet, Charlie Brown Christmas Live; Off Broadway Afterglow, Must, Diaspora, Counting Sheep); TRU literary manager Cate Cammarata, director, producer (My Life Is a Musical, The Assignment, My Father's Daughter), Martin Platt of Perry Street Theatricals (Dames at Sea on Broadway, Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike; off-Broadway, Bedlam's Hamlet/St. Joan, Sense & Sensibility, Georgie, an oak tree, In the Continuum; Lend Me a Tenor the musical in London).
