Producer's Perspective Is Sneak Peek

Producer's Perspective Is Sneak Peek

There's a relatively new entrant among theatre blogs out there, and it's from Off-Broadway producer extraordinaire Ken Davenport, the mastermind behind such hits as the blissfully funny Altar Boyz.

Called The Producer's Perspective, it contains the impresario's musings on "everything related to Broadway and beyond." He's been blogging since October.

How did I find him?

While perusing through the Chicago Sun-Times Web site, I spotted a story on my favorite Broadway show of the season, August: Osage County. The item, written by Davenport, focused on the inspiration behind the play's title. Turns out, the second city's second newspaper lifted the post directly from Davenport's blog.

The producer-cum-blogger (a progger? a blucer??) indicated that he had been provided a sneak peek at the script, which included playwright Tracy Letts' dedication of what Davenport describes as "arguably one of the worst titles since Flahooley for one of the best plays of the last decade."

Welcome to the blogosphere, Ken. I'm looking forward to more of your personal insights!

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
