“One Last Time”

“One Last Time” is my favorite tune from Hamilton.

There’s something gracious in the message, and something so amazing in the performance.  It’s one of the umpteen reasons I wanted Chris Jackson to speak at our conference this weekend.

And today, I have my own version of that message . . . as I tell you, for the last time, that this is your final chance to get a ticket to The TheaterMakers Summit, which starts in less than 24 hours.

I know, I know, you’ve probably heard me talk about the TheaterMakersSummit already.  Maybe you’ve seen ads, gotten emails, or heard me mention it a billion times in this blog.

Well, sorry, but not sorry.

The reason we e-smack you over the head with this message?

We know, for a fact, there is nothing else we do all year long that helps people achieve their theatrical goals.  Period.  And it only takes one weekend to do.

Think about it.

  • We have over 100 A-list presenters.  You wouldn’t have 100 professors in an MFA program!
  • We have over 30 panels, on every subject from streaming to playwriting to personal finance for TheaterMakers.  You wouldn’t have that diverse a curriculum in any MFA program.
  • And you will join hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of other TheaterMakers just like you.   You wouldn’t have that many networking connections in any MFA program!

If you’re a writer, director, designer, actor, producer or just appreciate the art of making theater, this is the conference for you.

And whether you’re just starting out or you’ve already had shows running around the world, you’re going to learn how to get to the next “stage” of your career.

You’ll just have to forgive me if I’ve talked about this conference a lot.  I can’t help it.  I remember what it was like seeing the first show I produced on stage, the first show that I wrote on stage.  And I’m obsessed with helping people feel that same feeling.  Because there is nothing like it.

And when you see an audience respond to something you’ve created?  Oh man . . . is it something.

So if you want to make theater, if you want to feel that feeling, there is no better place on the planet to be this weekend, then at The TheaterMakers Summit, with 103 experts and hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people just like you.

Still on the fence?

Think about it this way.

What’s the worst thing that could happen if you came?  You didn’t learn anything?  Ok, you’re in the same place you are now.  And you email me and we give you a refund.  No questions asked.

Now.  Ask yourself . . .

What’s the BEST thing that could happen if you came?  You get your show up?  You advance your career?  You meet someone to help you along?

Worth it?

Yeah.  That’s what I thought.

There.  I said it. This is my “one last time.”

Join us.
