Join Our Online Conversation Series This Wednesday
If there’s one thing we’re all doing right now, in addition to staying home, it’s asking ourselves a ton of questions that just aren’t answerable at this exact moment. When will this end? What will it be like when we can open?
One other question we’re asking … “What’s the best WE can be right now?” To help answer it, I’d love for you to join us this Wednesday, May 6 at 12:30pm Eastern/9:30am Pacific for an online conversation series. Our guests will be Alton Fitzgerald White and Jennifer Tepper.
- Alton Fitzgerald White is a singer, actor and dancer who broke Broadway records with 4,308 performances as King Mufasa in The Lion King. He’s also the author of PRIDE: Mastering Life’s Daily Performance and appeared in 2019’s The Goldfinch.
- Jennifer Tepper is producer of the musicals Be More Chill, Broadway Bounty Hunter, and Love In Hate Nation. She is also the Creative and Programming Director at Feinstein’s/54 Below and the author of The Untold Stories of Broadway book series. Tepper was recently named recipient of a 2020 Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award.
Let me give you a little more background. You might recall that for years we’ve been organizing an annual TEDxBroadway conference with our friends at Situation to ask “What’s the BEST Broadway can be?” Our next conference is slated for October, and we too are questioning the viability of having it in the fall given the crisis.
With things so up in the air, we asked previous speakers who’ve done talks on topics like service, adapting, innovating and positivity to do a more unscripted, casual chat to share their thoughts on “What’s the best WE can be right now?” They enthusiastically agreed that this was something they wanted to do and share with people.
If there’s one thing I want you to take away from this note it’s this: TEDxBroadway events aren’t just for Broadway people. They’re relevant for everybody who has a stake in the live entertainment ecosystem.
I’d really love for you to join us for this. As I said to the Goldstar team the other day, it’s just as important to take care of your heart as it is your brain. If you can set aside an hour next week to spend with us, I think it will do your heart good.
