I Wanna Be A Producer – How to Make a Killing on Broadway…or Get Killed

We rated this book:


Entertainment lawyer-turned-producer John Breglio has seen it all in theater, from big-budget success stories to horrendously overblown misfires. He has a wealth of experience and insight, and he shares it all in I Wanna Be a Producer.

It’s so cool to see a book about the theater that really digs deep and discusses the nitty-gritty day-to-day issues when it comes to mounting a show. Although Breglio has plenty of terrific anecdotes to share, he doesn’t let name-dropping or story-sharing get in the way of hammering home the insane hustle required of top producers.

Incredibly detailed, yet easily digestible, this one-stop-shop for theatrical advice talks facts and figures, including specific costs to expect (and that you probably wouldn’t expect), truly merging the financial and artistic tightrope so many productions have to walk to stay afloat, let alone find success.

I was a theater major in college, spending most of my time behind the scenes, and I learned a great deal from this book, so believe me when I tell you that I Wanna Be a Producer is an invaluable resource to any aspiring producer, performer, or devotee of the theater. Simply fantastic all around.
