What happens when a Tony Nominated Broadway Producer who is also an Acting Coach, has dinner with a Broadway Mom who has experience launching 400 Million dollar technology projects for fortune 100 companies--Broadway Approved is born, that’s what happens!
Stephanie and Michelle were both tired of seeing colleagues struggle to find quality Broadway Coaches at reasonable prices, or being duped into paying double or triple industry standard for unqualified coaches.
For this reason, we require our coaches to either personally have a Broadway Credit themselves or have successfully trained a student to be on Broadway. We want to make sure you are working with a coach that knows what it takes to approach a professional career.
Transparent pricing allows you to make sure you’re getting the best deal possible, administrative support allows coaches to be more effective, and our Broadway Approved standard ensures that you’re working with coaches qualified to further your career.
We know how lucky we are to be in NYC, able to connect with the best Broadway Coaches in the world, but Broadway is a global community, and this online platform allows young people from all over the world with dreams of being on Broadway access to the best training NYC has to offer. We are here to support that dream by connecting them with coaches who can help to make that dream happen.
