We partnered with the NYC Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment and St. Francis College for a great panel discussion on the creation of the hottest show on Broadway. We watched the PBS Great Performances documentary that follows creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda and the team behind the Tony Award winning musical and then heard from the documentary team who captured the groundbreaking journey. Check out clips from the panel below!
Toughing It Out As A PA
Production assistants famously get the grunt work and many many thankless tasks. Alex Horowitz, Director of PBS' documentary Hamilton's America, talks about the dues that PA's have to pay as you work your way up. It can be tough, but if you're good at it you become indispensable.
Women in Production
Nicole Pusateri, producer on PBS' documentary Hamilton's America, an NYU graduate, discusses her career path to working in production. She advises that internships were a big part of jumpstarting her career, starting back in high school. A lot of it is timing, but also making connections with everyone around you.
