As Executive Producer & Senior Vice President of Nederlander Worldwide Entertainment LLC since 2000, a New York division of the Nederlander Organization charged with international development of theatrical markets, venues and shows.
Initially as General Manager, I was responsible for line producing the entire physical show, including finding lighting and sound designers, building a custom tap dance floor, engaging the company of dancers and musicians and working with Savion Glover to determine show structure.
The program was a jazz jam set to a medley of Broadway tunes, including “Singing in the Rain;” “My Favorite Things;” “Midnight,” from Cats; “Hey Big Spender,” from Sweet Charity; and Miles Davis’s “Seven Steps to Heaven.”
This was dance that was about music and Savion’s body was an instrument.
The success of this event commenced a multi-year relationship to establish Savion Worldwide LLC to produce, present and manage Savion Glover in all bookings.
