About the Book:

A collection of insight from more than 100 top producers, advertising and marketing executives, union officials, critics, writers and actors on the business aspects of the theater.

Countless Stars and Executives of the Stage have participated in the American Theatre Wing's Working in the Theatre programs. Well known for creating The Tony Awards, the American Theatre Wing has sponsored these programs for more than thirty years. In wide-ranging and dynamic conversations, these great talents talk not to an interviewer but with each other, exploring every aspect of the behind-the-scenes world of some of the greatest shows ever produced: the fascinating process of creating and financing them. What is a Producer? How is a Broadway or Off-Broadway Show Financed? What are the strategies in Marketing a Show? How Do Producers and Unions Interact? What are the Special Issues of Not for Profit Producers? What is the Role of the Critic?

An Added Feature of this book is the edited In Depth excerpts from seminars on the financial and artistic challenges faced and overcome in bringing these recent hits to the Broadway stage: Avenue Q, The Drowsy Chaperone, Hairspray, Mamma Mia!, The Producers, and Thoroughly Modern Millie. For the First Time in the thirty-year history of the Working in the Threatre programs, this book gathers the insights of more than 100 top professionals-producers, advertising and marketing executives, union officials, critics, writers, and actors-on the business of a creative enterprise. These people speak directly to us about what it is really like to work in the theatre.
