Working on Broadway is a dream for a lot of folks. In this episode, I speak with Production Manager, Liza Luxenberg about Broadway’s close-knit family, and how that family is dealing with the effects of social distancing and COVID-19, and how might it re-start once we are able to. We also discuss the differences between Broadway and Tours, the role of the Production Manager, and how she, and the people at Aurora Productions, bring Broadway to life.
