In the room: Nick Flatto, director; Jonathan Hogue, writer; Tony Award winners Sue Gilad and Larry Rogowsky, producers (previous credits: Moulin Rouge!, Angels in America, Jagged Little Pill, Company, Funny Girl, Disaster! The Musical; Significant Other). We met writer Jonathan Hogue last year when his parody musical was the first new musical to open after shutdown. Since then the show has won seven 2021 BroadwayWorld Off-Broadway Awards including ‘Best New Musical', and picked up a pair of Broadway producers to guide the show forward. How did Sue and Larry find their way to Hawkins, Indiana? How has the show developed and changed, and how have the originating artists adapted to the dynamic of having actual producers on board? What is the division of responsibility, now and going forward? Who negotiated the current off-Broadway production, as well as future productions in the UK and Australia?
