Welcome to the miniseries, The Producer’s Perspective LIVE! From The Pandemic.
Inspired by my podcast and check-ins with friends, I started The Producer’s Perspective LIVE! I started going live every night at 8pm with a superstar TheaterMaker to check in with them and see how they were doing and how this pandemic has affected them.
Many shared how they’ve been keeping those creative juices flowing, sharing many fun memories, raising money and awareness for The Actors Fund and other charitable organizations needing our support. We even started sharing ‘something to make you smile’ by featuring a new music video one of you in the community produced, directed, wrote, performed in!
In this first episode, you’ll hear me testing the livestream platform LIVE and in front of our very first virtual audience! There was a lot of uncertainty back on March 23, 2020 when we started this. I say in this episode that we’ll go live for as long as Broadway is shut down . . . and I did not think that we would still be doing this in July!
