One of New York’s most recognizable grande dames, Tony Award winning producer Jamie DeRoy, swings by Shetler Studios to discuss such topics as producing in the 21st century, stand up comedy in the 1980s, and what inspires her about commercial and not-for-profit theater. In the 2018-2019 season, Jamie was a producer on Pretty Woman, The Lifespan of a Fact, The Ferryman, The Waverly Gallery, The New One, Network, To Kill A Mockingbird, Be More Chill, Ain’t Too Proud, King Lear, Gary: A Sequel To Titus Andronicus, Tootsie, and Beetlejuice.

 

Jamie pulls back the curtain on her career to discuss how a Pittsburgh native became the toast of the Great White Way, what it is like to have 13 shows running on Broadway, and why Joan Rivers was her biggest fan!

 

Also, Jamie shines the spotlight on Natasha Richardson, Joe Iconis, and Mario Cantone!
