Don’t want to listen? Then read ’em instead!

A few months ago, after one of my podcast guests finished his interview and I turned the recorder off, he said, “What I didn’t tell you is that the Actor was also bombed during rehearsals . . .  oh, and you should turn the podcasts into a book!”

“Uh . . . ok,” I said.

So we did!  Introducing Candid Conversations With Broadway Pros!

I’m thrilled to announce that we’ve transcribed all of the first 50 episodes of The Producer’s Perspective Podcast into five volumes of e-books (that’s 10 episodes each if I did my number countin’ right) and they are now available for your Kindle reading pleasure!

So if listening ain’t your thing, or you’d like to use these interviews like the theatrical text books they are (I feel like I got a PhD just listening to the wisdom all these folks dropped), click below to download them.

There is a charge, but we’re donating the profits to my friends at The Actors Fund.

Big thanks again to all the big wigs who gave 30 minutes of their time so we could capture their brilliance for the podcast . . . and now in print!
