In the latest JonesCast, TheaterJones editor Mark Lowry talks with Michael Jenkins, President and Managing Director of Dallas Summer Musicals. The topic is the 2011 season, which begins March 15 with Tommy Tune: Steps in Time at the Music Hall at Fair Park.
As I've written about on this site, DSM's 2011 season isn't a strong one, and in the interview, we discuss that. We talk about the available touring product, how competition with AT&T Performing Arts Center has effected DSM, and what's ahead for the 2012 season, which will include many more tours of newer Broadway shows. He also discusses producing on Broadway, and might get in a mention of the Tony Awards he's won for that.
