It's a tough economy, no doubt about it. All the more reason why people need support and the skills to go about the business of producing. Attendees will acquire some basic tools and information that will help them to function effectively in these times and the better days that are surely ahead. From networking techniques to legal requirements and effective business planning, plus a wealth of first-hand experience from more than a half dozen producers who are currently active in the Broadway and off-Broadway worlds, audiences will receive an informative, empowering and inspiring day.
 
Faculty this year will include Broadway producers William Franzblau ("Wonderland", "Little House on the Prairie", "Evil Dead", "Say Goodnight Gracie"), Cheryl Wiesenfeld ("Play Dead", "A Steady Rain", "Legally Blonde", "Elaine Stritch: At Liberty"), Patrick Blake ("The Exonerated", "Play Dead"), Jane Dubin ("The Norman Conquests", "The 39 Steps"), Tom Smedes ("Next Fall", "[title of show]"), plus attorneys Cheryl Davis and Bruce Lazarus, business consultants RK Greene and Sheila Speller; and a personal coach.
 
Other upcoming TRU workshops include Funding Panel: The Current Struggle on Thursday, January 20. Details about all TRU programs can be found online at www.truonline.org.
