Overheard at Angus: Volume IX
There has been a lot of talk about marriage this weekend (and
congratulations to everyone, btw – even though I’m a Red Sox fan, I was a very proud New Yorker on Friday night).
Because of all this chatter, I couldn’t help but get a chuckle out of the conversation I overheard between two Producers, one of whom has a show slated for production soon:
Producer #1: I’m thinking about getting married again. But I’m not sure.
Producer #2: How come?
Producer #1: I did it once. It didn’t work out. And it’s hard.
Producer #2: It sure is hard. But when you get it right, it’s magical.
Producer #1: Huh.
Producer #2: What?
Producer #1: Sounds like producing a Broadway show.
Producer #2: Yeah. (beat) And you’re doing that again, aren’t you?
Producer #1: (laughs) I guess so. Thanks.
Producer #2: Sure.
Producer #1: You know, marriage and producing have another thing in common.
Producer #2: What’s that?
Producer #1: They’re both expensive.
It took all my might to bite my tongue and not run up to these guys to try to option this scene! But I didn’t. I just sat back and remembered that if you want a big reward, you gotta risk big . . . and you gotta be willing to work harder than you ever have in your life.
And if you don’t want to work hard, then do us all a favor, and do something else.

Well, it finally happened. Last night, the Davenport clan watched…
Here’s what TheaterMakers were talking about this week . ….
What we forget about the theater, and especially Broadway, is…
[ANNOUNCEMENT] Applications now open for our 2nd Annual Dr. Kenny Encouragement Fund Scholarship for TheaterMakers!
I can’t believe it. It has already been a year…
If you are unsure of what Broadway is? THIS. IS….
Ken created one of the first Broadway podcasts, recording over 250 episodes over 7 years. It features interviews with A-listers in the theater about how they “made it”, including 2 Pulitzer Prize Winners, 7 Academy Award Winners and 76 Tony Award winners. Notable guests include Pasek & Paul, Kenny Leon, Lynn Ahrens and more.
