Come behind the scenes of nearly a dozen theatre companies of all shapes and sizes and learn from those who lead them about how to balance passion, ego, and common sense to build strong theatre companies. As a former stage manager, this book felt like slipping back into an old friend, yet Mulcahy's practical lessons transfer equally well into any non-profit struggling to stay afloat and relevant in the post-9/11 ecosystem. Mulcahy and those she interview remind the reader to build from a foundation of core values without letting those values translate into whimsy. Highly recommended. (41) ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 158115237X, Paperback)

Everything from finding a performance space, to creating a first season, to promoting your company and production, to designing a long-term plan is discussed in detail in this engaging guide–a sometimes irreverent, always relevant look behind and beyond the curtain of the modern stage troupe. Through personal experience and the "war stories" of esteemed stage veterans, the author reveals the pitfalls, passions, and practicalities of the theater industry. Chapters include developing business and budget plans, rehearsing, attracting attention with publicity and word-of-mouth, adapting to growth, and more. For everyone from the budding professional to the avid audience member wanting the ultimate back stage tour, no other book contains the unique insight and sound advice found in this indispensable reference.
