TEAM Producing Director Alexandra Lalonde and guest expert Matt Ross will lead a 2-hour peer-to-peer conversation about press and publicity for individual projects and small companies. With participants we will discuss topics including theatrical print and online media, press releases, reviews and advance features, and budgets. We'll share experiences from the TEAM's own press relationships, and solicit your questions in advance of the workshop to help guide our discussion.
