On Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015 there was a Theatre Intern Network meeting at 6:30PM. TIN was joining by Jennifer Ashley Tepper, Director of Programming at 54 Below, and the author of The Untold Stories of Broadway book series. As the leader of 54 Below’s creative team, Tepper is responsible for programming every show at the Broadway supper club and concert venue. She has curated and overseen the production of over 500 shows, ranging from musicals in concert, to original solo acts, to theatrical reunions, to songwriter celebrations, and beyond. As a writer, Tepper has authored two volumes of The Untold Stories of Broadway series, published by Dress Circle. For these books, Tepper interviewed 250 theatre professionals about the Broadway theaters themselves and their stories of working in each house. The Untold Stories of Broadway partners with a charitable organization that receives proceeds from each volume, and is currently partnered with Broadway Impact and with the Theatre Development Fund. Published in 2013 and 2014, each book has occupied the #1 spot on Amazon.com’s Best Sellers List in Broadway & Musicals.
As with every TIN meeting, the panel discussion was followed by free pizza and networking!
