Ted Chapin: Creating Follies on Broadway in 1971

Thu 9 May 2019, 6pm
Running Time: 45 mins

Join Ted Chapin as he talks to Mark Shenton about his time working on Follies on Broadway. In 1971, college student Ted Chapin found himself with a front row seat as a production assistant on the creation and premiere of the legendary Broadway musical Follies. Since he kept a journal of everything he saw and heard, Chapin was able to document the making of Follies. Over 30 years later, Chapin turned that journal into a book, Everything Was Possible, which charts a roller-coaster ride from the uncertainties of casting to drama-filled rehearsals and more. 

Ted Chapin is president of The Rogers & Hammerstein Organization in New York. His early career in the theatre included production assistant or directorial assistant positions on the Broadway productions of The Sunshine Boys, The Rothschilds, The Unknown Soldier and His Wife and, of course, Follies.
