The Producer: From "Rent" to "Hamilton" and Beyond

A hip-hop musical about America’s founding fathers with a virtually all minority cast. A reimagining of La bohème as a rock musical uncovering the AIDS crisis in New York City. A coming-of-age musical about the anxieties of entering adulthood told through cartoons. These are just a few of the radically relevant and compelling concepts that Tony Award-winning producer Jeffrey Seller has turned into Broadway gold. In this session, David Rubenstein interviews Seller (Hamilton, Rent, Avenue Q) about democratizing theater, diversifying history, and putting on a really good show.
