Our own Glenna Bowman is in New York City this week to take part in a Three-Day Intensive seminar sponsored by Commercial Theater Institute (CTI), the theatre industry’s leading training and professional development program.
Leading Broadway producers Jeffrey Seller (Hamilton, Rent), David Stone (Wicked, The Boys in the Band), and Kevin McCollum (Rent, The Play That Goes Wrong) will be there to share their experiences with the class. The team behind "The Band's Visit" will also be there to reveal the epic journey behind bringing the show to Broadway. Speakers include Orin Wolf (Lead Producer), Neil Pepe (Artistic Director of the Atlantic Theater Company), David Cromer (Director), Itamar Moses (Book), Michele Groner (Director of Marketing), and Liz Furze (AKA).
Glenna arrived on Wednesday, 3/7, greeted by a flurry of wet snow falling from the sky, but that didn't stop her from enjoying the vibrancy of the Big Apple, including a stop at the Imperial Theatre to see the revival of Oscar and Hammerstein's "Carousel," with its remarkable cast, led by Joshua Henry, Jessie Meuller and Renee Fleming. Standout performances by Lindsay Mendez and Alexander Gemignani, as well as, a top-notch dance ensemble, knocked it out of the park!
