Columbia Starts Producer Fellowship

Columbia University has announced a new fellowship program for theatre students. “Producer Harold Prince said the new program, which will invite one or two students a year to follow a specific study and producing plan, was created for fledgling producers who ‘want to nurture new work, encourage new artists, and take chances’ but ‘recognize that the current climate on Broadway makes that almost impossible.’ The Fellowship “will emphasize that the creative producer’s role is to be the instigator, the collaborator, and the leader who gets art on the stage and to the public.”
