$19.95 Sale • Save
After ten years of running his very successful blog, The Producer's Perspective, Tony Award-winning Producer Ken Davenport wanted his audience to hear the perspective of the most successful TheaterMakers in the world, in the hopes that their stories and advice would inspire others to make more theater. That's why he started his podcast, interviewing hundreds of the best in the business on how they did it, and how others can too. What Ken didn't expect was how much their words inspired HIM! And he found himself listening to those interviews over and over, and writing down quotes and re-reading key takeaways from his interviews whenever he needed to solve a problem. Each one of Ken's guests became a mentor to Ken . . . whether they knew it or not! Ken found these short pieces of advice so helpful that he wanted other TheaterMakers to receive the same benefit, which is why he created Cast of Mentors: Volume 1. In Volume 1 of Cast of Mentors, Ken is sharing his most-treasured pieces of advice from high-achievers-including Terrence McNally, Dominique Morisseau, David Henry Hwang, Daryl Roth, Kathleen Marshall, Stephen C. Byrd and more-so that you may gain 50 new Broadway mentors to help you navigate life in this new world.
