Let's Put On a Show! is a one-stop, reader-friendly handbook for anyone producing a play or musical. Renowned Broadway producer and three-time Tony Award - winner Stewart Lane guides you through the entire process from idea to ovation, with ways to keep everyone involved working together and solutions to those little - and not so little - problems that occur in every show. Let's Put On a Show! gives novice and first-time theatre producers at all levels, but especially in community and regional theatre, a Broadway insider's advice for successfully staging a performance - even when you don't have a big Broadway budget. Lane offers how-tos on the fundamentals of every aspect of production, including: selecting a show finding a theatre space putting together your creative team holding auditions and making casting decisions scheduling rehearsals promoting the show handling all of the basic elements of bringing a production from the page to the stage. Best yet, because in nonprofit and educational settings the producer often doubles as director, Lane also banks on his regional-theatre directorial experience to weave in thoughts from the director's perspective throughout the book. He even provides tips for playwrights and suggestions for dealing with reviews - in short, from every perspective important to a good performance. Packed with information that's not just useful but crucial to your production's success and sprinkled throughout with entertaining and encouraging stories from Lane's own Broadway experience, Let's Put On a Show! will be the helper you'll turn to time and again as you make your next show your best one.
