Exclusive Podcast: Go 'Behind the Curtain' with Tony-Winning Producer, Co-Owner of Feinstein's/54 Below Richard Frankel
Richard Frankel is one of Broadway's most respected producers and is one of the co-owners of Feinstein's/54 Below, arguable the most influential cabaret space in the world. As a producer, his passion for theater led to audiences discovering such theatrical pieces as Penn & Teller, Driving Miss Daisy, Frankie and Johnny in the Clair De Lune, Stomp, Angels in America, The Producers, Hairspray, and revivals of The Sound of Music, A Little Night Music, Company, Sweeney Todd, and so many others.
Richard pulls back the curtain on his career to discuss how his beginnings in theater were shaped at La Mama, what was it like creating the incomparable Feinstein's/54 Below, and why El Grande De Coca Cola is more important than we think!
