Register at truonline.org/events/a-conversation-with-producers-jack-w-batman-and-bruce-robert-harris/ to receive the Zoom link the morning of the workshop.

This informal (and virtual) Q&A provides a chance to learn everything you've ever wanted to know about producing theater. Come meet Jack W. Batman and Bruce Robert Harris, two-time Tony Award-winning Broadway producers. Since 2005, they have produced over sixty plays and musicals for Broadway, London's West End, Off-Broadway, regional theatres, and national and international tours and festivals plus many private and corporate events. Special guest speakers at TRU's January 23rd "Raising Money for Theater" workshop, Jack and Bruce are paying a return visit to get to know the TRU community better. They will gladly continue the conversation from the previous workshop about raising money, but also are making themselves available to answer any questions about producing for theater at any and all levels, beginner to Broadway.

"Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were forced to rethink all TRU programs for Zoom presentation. Turns out that what seemed at first to be a drastic inconvenience has paid off with surprising benefits," said Bob Ost, executive director of TRU. "We now have extended our reach well beyond the New York area, throughout the US and as far away as England, Australia, Singapore and Malaysia. Zoom makes it possible for people from all over the world to meet and speak with Broadway producers. Amazing!"
