The Jury is Still Out

11/27/2021
News in the theatre community these last few weeks have been the highest of highs and lowest of lows. On the one hand, new and exciting movie- musical adaptations continue to roll out. Including the recent casting announcements for the upcoming Wicked feature film (hold for applause). On the other hand, Jess and Joe continue to need to defend the value and validity of virtual theater offerings after a recent survey declared that them merely an unsuccessful pandemic experiment (hold for...

Making Of: Promethean Fire

11/18/2021
Back in September, Broadway Unlocked had the honor of filming at the Oculus with Paul Taylor Dance Company as they gifted a performance of Promethean Fire to the city and the people of New York. After the shoot, Jess and Joe sat down to share their experiences as director and set PA, respectively. It was a long, wild day that resulted in a beautiful film and some great stories. We hope you join us for the virutal benefit, Modern is Now: Illumination, on November 18 at 8pm EST to watch the...

Jesters of the Corpocracy

11/11/2021
Big tech is getting bigger every day, so this week Joe and Jess speculate about a (hopefully distant) future where corporations operate like governments. (Hellscape hellscape blah blah blah...) While we don't want to live in the 'metaverse' just yet, we find it important to consider the impact and influence of technology on our daily lives and, in particular, on the media that we consume. How do we determine truth from fiction? Can we rely solely on anti-trust laws to protect us? Food for...

A Startup Hero's Journey

11/4/2021
Jess comes from the theatre world. Joe comes from the startup world. But when they join forces we come to realize that there are some surprising industry similarities and a lot that we can learn from each other. On today's epsiode Jess and Joe talk about the still uncertain economic landscape of Broadway and different metrics for success or failure. Failure is exalted in the startup landscape but could mean the end of your career in theatre... Leave us a review on Apple Podcasts:...

No Perfect Solution

10/28/2021
This week Joe and Jess tackle the issue of Broadway merchandizing and improvements that are slowly being made to the system. They also discuss feature film writing credits and changes proposed by the WGA. It's an enlightening example of how the theatre and film industries differ, and possibly what they can learn from one another. As always, these are big, complicated issues and we certainly don't have all the answers but we'd love to know what you think! Join in on the conversation with...

Putting the Genie Back in the Bottle

10/21/2021
Joe and Jess (naturally) have a lot of thoughts about the CAA/ICM merger. If they decide to go ahead as planned and focus more on helping their clients with entrepreneurial pursuits, how will these new revenue streams benefit the talent? And how are they being protected and not taken advantage of? Also, does this matter if you aren't a movie star? Are any movie stars reading this? Let us know!

Don't Dig Too Deep

10/14/2021
A few months ago, before Broadway reopened, Jess and Joe had a discussion about the shows that announced they would not be reporting their grosses for this season.

Fiefdoms are Cute

10/7/2021

Irksome Philanthropy

9/23/2021
In this epsiode, Joe and Jess take on philanthropy. Specifically, they talk about large donations to small arts organizations and wonder why we rely on wealthy individuals, rather than our government, for support. One upside of this relationship is often the creation of brand new mediums for artists to play with and make new works that shape the future of theatre and entertainment.

A Thing That Matters

9/16/2021
How do you define theatre and does it matter? Jess and Joe get into the ongoing debate of how we are using the designation of theatre as the digital world expands. They also discuss who benefits from certain definitions. And stick around until the end to hear their take on ASL interpreters and how they get (or more likely, do not get) credit for translation of music.
