Broadway Masters, a digital master class from producer Marcus Lovingood of Lovingood Studios and award-winning director and choreographer Paul McGill, is now available for pre-order at BroadwayMasters.org and available November 10 to students around the world.
The master class brings together Broadway talent to share their journey from the classroom to the Great White Way in a digital educational program.
Featured on Broadway Masters are Taye Diggs (Rent, Hedwig and the Angry Inch), Anthony Rapp (Rent, If/Then), Laura Osnes (Grease, Cinderella), Jon Rua (Hamilton, In the Heights), Courtney Reed (Aladdin, In the Heights), Charlotte d’Amboise (Chicago, A Chorus Line), Nick Adams (Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Wicked), Lindsay Mendez (Wicked, Godspell), and Kurt Froman (Movin’ Out, Black Swan) as well as a special “turn-the-tables” interview with series director McGill.
Broadway Masters, according to press notes, “provides valuable insight into the journey of making it on Broadway. Through the experiences and stories of some of the most successful actors in the industry, Broadway Masters provides students with insight into what it takes to make it on the boards and stay there.”
“Most Broadway hopefuls are in rural cities and far from the opportunities of going to a conservatory or even having a solid theater department at their local college. Now through the power of the internet, we are able to bring the secrets, tips and tricks from the masters themselves to students across the world with the click of a button and a Wi-Fi connection,” added producer Lovingood. “Students are looking for the street smarts, trade secrets and the vital information that will give them an edge on the competition…in Broadway Masters, we teach the stuff they don’t teach in schools.”
Each episode includes 45 minutes of in-depth educational interview segments showcasing one actor’s advice, along with their personal story of how they made it on Broadway. The series is accompanied by a hardcover Broadway Masters book that contains the entire program transcript, and resources from the Masters interviewed for $49. All ten master classes will be available as a package for $199, with bundles starting at $69; the unlimited streaming package includes a PDF of the Broadway Masters book for the first 1,000 students who purchase.
