Playwright Chronicles: Marco Antonio Rodriguez

Here at StageAgent we have had a busy few months adding guides for exciting new works. Working with a host of new playwrights from across the globe, our catalogue of shows now also features a wide-range of guides for new full-length and one-act plays and musicals. We have built up fascinating new relationships with our diverse and inspiring group of new playwrights.

We were interested in learning what inspires these playwrights creatively, why they started out as a writer, and the challenges they have faced along the way. Over the course of a series of new blog posts, we will be asking playwrights to share their experiences and shine a light on how they set about writing many of the new works that are featured on StageAgent. First up, we are very pleased to introduce a wonderful playwright, Marco Antonio Rodriguez!

How to Choose The Right Plays or Musicals to Produce

So, you know you want to put on a play. Perhaps there’s a show you’ve been burning to produce. As we set about producing a play in today’s day and age, I think we must ask ourselves, “Why this play? Why now? Why this medium?” Sometimes, the play itself seems to answer these questions immediately. Sometimes, it’s more of a challenge. Producers selecting plays may also use this criteria to drive their lists of dream shows – and yet sometimes logistical factors, a desire to put together a season of plays in dialogue with one another, or the desire to find the perfect play for an ensemble of artists you love set producers on a more directed, play-specific hunt. And of course, budget is always a limiting factor. Read more to learn how to choose an amazing season for your theater group while adhering to budget constraints.
