One month ago, almost to the day, several hundred passionate people converged on New World Stages for the first ever TEDxBroadway conference.
It was a very exciting day, with great speakers from our industry like Jordan Roth, Greg Mosher, Randy Weiner, Damian Bazadona and many more. And it also featured great speakers from outside our industry like Patricia Martin, Barry Kahn, Steve Gullans, Juan Enriquez and, you guessed it, many more. (You can read some takeaways here.)
And I was fortunate to have been given a few minutes to speak as well.
Part of the TEDx mission is to make sure that people who were interested in attending, but couldn't make it, get a chance to watch/hear what happened through online videos.
And I'm thrilled to say that our videos went live yesterday!
You can check them all out here.
Listen to Randy Weiner talk about producing a show with no marketing budget. Listen to Barry Kahn talk about a central box office for all of Broadway. And hear performers Matt Sax and Joe Iconis blow the roof off the joint with their incredible music that we'll all be hearing more of in the next twenty years, I'm sure.
Oh, and maybe, just maybe, if you watch mine, you'll see my first ever headshot.

And get ready, because we're going to announce a save-the-date for TEDxBroadway II. And unlike most sequels, this one promises to be even better than the original.
