Joel has worked in the theatrical licensing industry for over 12 years, including many years spent at Dramatists Play Service as the Manager of Operations, HR, & Events and at Broadway Licensing as the Manager of Operations. There is an extremely good chance that you have met Joel at one of the many theatre conferences and festivals around the country and he has given you a play recommendation (or six).
A fun fact about Joel: One time he was stage managing a show and some backstage masking began smoking and smoldering just before intermission. Luckily, it was a forest scene around a campfire, and he managed to convince the audience that the smoky smell was all a part of the show. Ah…the magic of theatre.
