Ken Davenport: Tony Award winning producer


Ken Davenport is a Broadway producer whose Once On This Island is nominated for eight Tony Awards.

Davenport says his parents, a doctor and a landscape designer, bestowed him with the discipline and creativity he’s leveraged to succeed on Broadway. In our conversation we go back to his early work and you hear how he financed his first few shows and the marketing strategy he used to promote them with limited resources.

In his youth Davenport spent time at Radio Shack playing on computers; his passion and understanding of the digital sphere led to his unprecedented use of the internet, not just for marketing his shows, but also for the online community he’s built to inspire, and provide professional development, to emerging producers.
