Many Broadway producers start their careers by producing much smaller shows, often in tiny spaces and for short runs off-off-Broadway. The experience is invaluable, but the rules are very different from Broadway. CTI has teamed up with Shay Gines of the New York Innovative Theatre Foundation to create a full day course that will explore this theatrical world. The New York Innovative Theatre Foundation’s purpose is to celebrate the great work being done off-off-Broadway and help bolster the community surrounding those shows.
Inspired by feedback received from CTI participants, this course will explore how and where to mount a small production, how to find the resources to make tiny budgets go far, and how to find an audience – perfect for producers, writers, and actors looking to kick start their careers.
Topics and speakers will include:
Shay Gines, Innovative Theatre Foundation
Business Models & Budgets
Tim Errickson, Boomerang Theatre Company
Mark Finley, TOSOS
Erica Rotstein, Broadway Across America & Amy Ashton, Colt Coeur
Heather E. Cunningham, Retro Productions
