Arts & Public Life Breakfasts ‘So you want to be a Broadway producer?’
John Frost, OAM, Chief Executive of the Gordon Frost Organisation
Though still in his fifties, John Frost is one of the last of the old-style commercial producers in Australia who built their business up from the ground from teenage show-business to Broadway and beyond. The winner of two Tony awards on Broadway, he here reveals the hard-earned secret of how he financed Wicked, how he and his small team turned the musical of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert into a world-wide celebration; and how plans to do the same for Dr Zhivago. After 30 years in the business John knows all there is to know about the ups and downs of investment in the entertainment industry. And he is passionate about it.
