About The Broadway Artists Intensive:
Created by Jackie Bayne Gilman and Jason Gilman, Broadway veterans (Chicago, South Pacific, Legally Blonde) who now live in Jupiter, and their longtime colleague Greg Graham of New York City, The Broadway Artists Intensive immerses students in the major areas of performing arts.
"Since my husband and I moved here from New York City, students constantly ask us how we did it, how we made it to Broadway. The answer is simple: training, training and more training,” says Artistic Director Jackie Bayne Gilman. “And not just quantity of training, but quality of training.”
"That is why we are so thrilled to partner with the Kravis Center to provide an unparalleled, high level training program where our fellow Broadway performers, directors, choreographers and casting directors from New York City can join us at the Kravis Center to train the next generation of Broadway hopefuls,” she adds.
