What should a producer look for in a play, and how does one know (or think) a play will work when reading it? Some producers (and others) may not know how to read a play and identify structural and other dramaturgical flaws that might doom the work. Attendees gain four perspectives, from a commercial producer, a not-for-profit producer, an agent and a literary manager. Does each of the four look at works differently? Or is a good play just a good play, whoever is reading it? Panelists will also talk about what personally interests them about new work, as well as how to give input to writers to help guide them to make their work more successful.
Doors open at 7:00pm for networking and refreshments, panel starts promptly at 7:30pm. FREE for TRU members; $12 for non-members. Please call at least a day in advance for reservations: 212/714-7628; or e-mail TRUnltd@aol.com. The panel will be co-moderated by Sherry Eaker, editor-at-large of Back Stage.
