Broadway Bound Theatre Festival's mission in its inaugural year is to refresh the festival scene by working closely with its playwrights throughout the production process, as they develop their work for the bigger stage.
With a goal of becoming a launching pad for regional, Off-Broadway and Broadway transfers, all shows selected for the festival have received script critiques from a panel of award-winning playwrights and producers. They are then mentored in every detail of successful showcasing by industry professionals.
“The result is a handpicked series of great, never-before-seen work that will provide to be a fantastical theatrical experience for our audiences,” says Lenore Skomal, BBTF director.
This all-encompassing education leads participants through designing marketing graphics, generating press releases, honing elevator pitches, building fan bases, specifying target audiences, and understanding the importance of a strong production team—including lighting and set design— in creating fully-realized performances.
