Stage Management: West End vs. Broadway

About The Webinar:

With more and more Broadway shows making the leap across the Atlantic and opening in the West End, this case study based webinar follows the West End transfer of Broadway's Rock of Ages, Beautiful and Waitress. As a direct comparison, special guest Matt DiCarlo (Broadway PSM), will be joining the webinar to look at the Broadway transfer of the West End's
The Play That Goes Wrong.  

Together Graham and Matt will investigate different stage management styles, relationships with an existing creative team, and challenges in the process of opening an existing show in another country.
