Theatermania Talks with Sh-K-Boom/Ghostlight Prez Kurt Deutsch

TheaterMania.com's Ashley Van Buren talks with our President and Co-Founder Kurt Deutsch about Cast Recordings, contracts, and crowd-funding:

Kurt Deutsch is not a left-brain, right-brain kind of guy. Instead, both sides of his brain operate simultaneously, with creative thoughts substantiated by business ones and vice versa. As the co-founder of Sh-K-Boom and Ghostlight Records, Deutsch's job is to balance working with composers, musicians, and sound engineers when record producing, and navigating recording contracts when landing a new artist or cast album.
