Fun on a Friday: What a Producer does.

Almost two years ago, I took a poll of all my Producing Peers in the Broadway League and asked them to give me their definition on what the &!$%# a Producer did anyway.

Over 100 of them responded.  You can read all their smart, funny, sad and inspiring answers here.

And when you’re done, then you can just look at the graphic below which has been making its way around the internet these days.

It pretty much says it all.

Happy Friday everyone.  Here’s to hoping you pull a rabbit out of your producing hat this weekend.
