Each reading will be followed by a reception and a "Dollars and Sense" panel with top industry professionals - commercial producers, general managers and artistic directors - who will discuss the further development of the show that is read. "Not only do we introduce audiences to new works, we also offer them an insider's look at the producing process," says TRU president Bob Ost.
