Description

Harvey Brownstone conducts an in-depth interview with Richard Hester, Broadway Stage Manager and Production Supervisor & Author, “HOLD PLEASE: Stage Managing a Pandemic” 

About Harvey's guest: 

Today’s guest, Richard Hester, is a highly respected stage manager and production supervisor for Broadway shows and touring productions throughout the world.   

He’s worked on many shows including “Wicked”, “Cabaret”, “Phantom of the Opera”, “Annie Get Your Gun”, “Gypsy”, “West Side Story”, and many more.  For MANY years he’s been the international production supervisor for “Jersey Boys”.  He travels on the road with Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin on their concert tours.  And for over 20 years, he’s been one of the lead producers of the “Broadway Barks” animal shelter adoption event with Bernadette Peters, that’s held every summer in New York City.   

When the pandemic hit in March 2020, the entire entertainment industry abruptly and indefinitely came to a crashing halt.  Our guest decided to start writing a blog on social media, which, over time, was read and enjoyed by thousands of people.  His thought-provoking and insightful essays were not just about covid.  He wrote about EVERYTHING:  from his love of New York City and the world of theatre, to the Black Lives Matter movement and the chaotic, profoundly troubling events in American politics, leading up to and following the presidential election.   

His daily columns have been compiled into a brand new book entitled, “Hold, Please: Stage Managing a Pandemic”.  And those essays, written from March 12, 2020 to June 10, 2021, collectively continue to give us insights, food for thought and guidance in multiple ways.
