Broadway’s powerhouse producer Jed Bernstein joined Broadway Theatre Project’s 2013 season once again this year as a guest artist. Jed Bernstein’s lecture gave apprentices practical knowledge about performing in New York. Apprentices learned the importance of having a thorough knowledge of musical theatre history in order to become well-rounded performers. He explained the main aspects of producing from raising money, scheduling, marketing, and the final production.
Jed’s production credits include: Broadway’s “Grace” (2013), “Driving Miss Daisy” (2010) and “Oleana” (2009). After 11 years as President of the League of American Theatres and Producers, now the Broadway League, Jed Bernstein launched “Above The Title Entertainment,” a new Broadway/Television production company and marketing consultancy that combines his skill at marketing and promotion with love for the theatre.
