About The Business of Broadway
How does a show make it to Broadway? Join us for a Salon with Jessica Genick, a well-known producer of ten Broadway shows and her big-time guests! At each session, Jessica will invite a different industry expert to offer their unique insights into the world of showbiz.
Guests include industry insiders who'll discuss everything from drama school, diversity, and development, not to mention the nuts and bolts behind how your favorite shows make (and lose) money. You will meet professional actors, producers, choreographers, casting directors, and general managers who will share their expertise with you.
Bring your questions, and expect interesting answers that will spark engaging discussion!
