Drama Department Monthly Meeting and Luncheon

Backstage on Broadway

Tuesday, January 9th
Luncheon at 12:00pm; Program at 1:00pm

​Do you know what a Broadway production Stage Manager’s job is?

The Drama Department is delighted to welcome Glen Ridge resident and Production Stage Manager of 21 Broadway shows, Peter Hanson to our January luncheon. Peter will discuss the responsibilities of taking a Broadway show from pre-production, through the first rehearsal, to opening night and beyond. He will regale us with a few tales of the many stars he has worked with from Jerry Lewis in Damn Yankees, to Audra McDonald in 110 In the Shade, from Nathan Lane and John Goodman in Waiting for Godot to Barbara Cook in Sondheim on Sondheim, and many more.

Peter is currently working on the Broadway production of Beautiful, The Carole King Musical. Adding to our afternoon festivities, we will have a guest singer-songwriter who will entertain us with a few Carole King tunes.

There will be a door prize of two tickets to Beautiful, The Carole King Musical including a backstage tour after the performance.
