Episode 155. Big-Shot Broadway Producer

Published by austin on

Tom Gabbard is not only the President of the North Carolina Blumenthal Center for the Performing Arts but he’s also involved with the Independent Presenters Network, a consortium of for-profit and not-for-profit presenters around the US that invests in the front-end of commercial projects that often play their respective venues. Featuring information on what a producer actually does, fantastic backstage stories from the opening-night of Spamalot!, the value of broadcasting theatre on television, examples of how social networks can sometimes overcome bad reviews, and a very special appearance by Eddie McKraken, the spokesman for those not-at-all annoying Castrol commercials.
