Ep45 – Ken Davenport: Tony-Winning Producer, Writer & Theatre Entrepreneur

This 2-time Tony winning producer has a 26 year career directly involved with Broadway. As one of the most entrepreneurial people in the creative space, he continues to reinvent himself and how he is involved in Broadway. In 2004, he founded Davenport Theatrical Enterprises (DTE) which allows him to create, produce, and manage. His first ventures as a producer were the three Off-Broadway shows: The Awesome 80s Prom, Altar Boyz, and My First Time, which he also wrote! Davenport’s first Broadway credit as a producer was 13, and since then he has produced over a dozen other Broadway shows, including the first Broadway revival of Godspell, the Tony Award-winning Best Musical Kinky Boots, and Deaf West Theatre’s Spring Awakening.
