What a detailed conversation today with Stephen Lindsay and Brett Sirota, co-founders of The Road Company. Stephen and Brett lay the groundwork for building and planning a tour and map out their own journeys to becoming bookers. This is an essential conversation for understanding how producing extends beyond Broadway.
Stephen has enjoyed over two decades of distributing, producing and presenting touring productions throughout North America. As the co-owner and primary sales agent at The Road Company, he directly books all First National tours and oversees the company’s touring product, including shows such as Wicked, Kinky Boots, Catch Me If You Can and Moulin Rouge. Stephen has also successfully booked family attractions, one-person shows, symphony orchestras, and world-class magic into venues around the world.
Brett oversees all operational aspects of The Road Company, including finances, technology and legal matters. Brett has more than 20 years of experience in theatrical booking, plus additional background in company and general management as well as arts administration. He is also a retired attorney. Brett hails from Baltimore, MD and is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania.
