Meet Sean Tecson & Poor Boys’ Chorus (Broadway Bound Theatre Festival)

Poor Boys

Name: Sean Tecson

What is your current project?  Poor Boys’ Chorus

Where are you performing your show and why is it a good fit for your production?

Poor Boys’ Chorus is one of twenty plays selected from more than 200 submissions for Broadway Bound Theatre Festival’s inaugural season at the 14th Street Y Theater. The play reimagines the traditional Greek chorus as a trio of orphans telling the tragically romantic story about the town’s richest girl and an orphan boy falling in love through movement, light, and a little bit of magic. The chorus of orphans act as a traveling troupe of performers who are telling this story to different audiences in different venues every night, giving the play a pop-up performance feel that is perfect for a festival setting.

What’s next for you?

At the end of 2016 I accepted the A.R.T./New York Creative Opportunity Fellowship and have been working at the Alliance of Resident Theatres/New York supporting their development department and fundraising for the organization’s various programs that serve over 370 nonprofit theatre companies in New York City. I will be entering the second and final half of my fellowship where I will be delving into institutional fundraising and a re-branding project for our department.

What is the name of the last show you saw?

Miss Saigon

Any advice for your peers?

Don’t forget that it’s just theatre. We’re not curing cancer or conducting brain surgery. At the end of the day, we’re working on something that we love and we should never forget that. It’s a lot of work, but no one is going to die if a small mistake is made here or there. Do your best and remember that we’re all humans doing this weird theatre thing.
