Now that it’s official let’s roll the self-hype! Modern Prophet was placed on The Broadway Black List as one of the Top 10 unproduced plays in NYC. Amazing, right?!?! So grateful to Ken Davenport, Eric Webb and the DTE team for the crazy, thrill honor. Already starting a fantastic 2017 (event details below) and hoping to see Modern Prophet on a Broadway stage as part of the action.
