Show Notes

We sit down with MCC Theater's Artistic Director, Will Cantler, and Digital Marketing Manager, Molly Barson, to delve into their recent digital production of Alan Bowne’s Beirut starring Marisa Tomei and Oscar Isaac https://mcctheater.org/tix/beirut-benefit-play-reading/

They speak openly about what they learned working in this way for the first time, what worked (and what didn't) and the surprises they encountered along the way. We discuss how to conduct rehearsals in quarantine, the benefits of live chat, the proportion of new audience members this reached, how to price this type of work, and loads more.
