"A Rooney Rule For Broadway" - Jim Joseph
"Hamilton," and its diverse cast, is a once-in-a-generation phenomenon. The reality for most Broadway shows is very different. Jim Joseph, Theatre Manager at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, talks about the importance of diversity and seeing yourself represented on stage. He challenges the Broadway world to create its own version of the “Rooney Rule” and remember that diversity matters.
Jim Joseph is currently the Theatre Manager at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre, the Broadway home of Manhattan Theatre Club.
