Listen up! | The Producer’s Perspective Podcast on the horn with chief NYT drama critic Ben Brantley

You’re already a regular listener to producer Ken Davenport’s weekly podcast, right?

If so, you know that every Sunday as regular as an A train (just kidding – Davenport’s podcast runs on time) you can look forward to a fascinating new chat with some Broadway luminary. Davenport has already snared a stream of big league agents, producers, theater owners, playwrights and marketers. If you’re interested in the American theatre and how it works at the very highest level, there’s simply nothing else like this intimate back channel.

Find Davenport on the web or in iTunes. It’s like a secret passage to Broadway right in your ear.

Looking for some must-hear recommendations from past shows? There are so, so many. But here’s two: Kevin McCollum and Michael Riedel. You have not heard world class dishing until you’ve heard New York Post theater columnist Michael Riedel talk. Oh lordy. You’ll want to keep a lookout for Riedel’s upcoming book, RAZZLE DAZZLE: THE BATTLE FOR BROADWAY.

But lo and behold – who should appear in Davenport’s latest podcast but a lil’ critic you may have heard of – the NYT’s Ben Brantley.
